Haybrook College selected to deliver Pupil Referral Unit services for Windsor & Maidenhead

Following a competitive tendering process, Achieving for Children has selected Haybrook College to deliver the Pupil Referral Unit services on behalf of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead from September 2018 for three academic years. The agreement will make sure that those young people who are permanently excluded from school, or medically unable to attend their mainstream school will receive a good education while being supported to be able to return to school.

Kevin McDaniel, Director of Children’s Services said, “The Pupil Referral Unit is a statutory service for a few young people, and this arrangement is the next step in the unit’s journey to make sure that the pupils who attend receive an excellent education and support. I am looking forward to working in partnership with Haybrook College to provide a smooth transition to the new arrangements.”

Helen Huntley, Executive Headteacher, Haybrook College said, “The College is delighted to be working collaboratively with the Royal Borough and Achieving for Children to support children and young people who require specialist alternative provision. We are committed to working hard and in partnership with young people and families to ensure that they have the skills, confidence, and resilience which will enable them to return to mainstream education where possible.”

Cllr Natasha Airey said, “We are committed to ensuring that every pupil in the borough can access a good education and this arrangement will make sure that those on the edge of mainstream education have the same opportunity”.

Haybrook College and Achieving for Children will work together in the coming weeks to ensure that every pupil being educated by the Pupil Referral Unit today knows what the transition arrangements are for their education.
