Welcome to Francis Barber PRU

Francis Barber is the Wandsworth Secondary Pupil Referral Unit and is based across two sites – Tooting in SW17, and Westdean in SW18.  Alongside provision for disaffected young people and those for whom mainstream education proved difficult are the Pathways provision for pupils with complex special needs and the Wandsworth Interim  School Project.  The PRU aims to be a place where  pupils are supported to prepare for reintegration back into learning. We are passionate about all pupils fulfilling their potential   and provide a fresh start for all within a caring supportive environment.

“The behaviour and safety of students are outstanding.” (Ofsted 2013)

Inspiring and supporting young people to achieve the best outcomes and engage with their future

Providing young people with a second chance in education, preparing them for their futures

Aims

Francis Barber is part of the Education Inclusion Service and is a place where pupils can:

  • develop their educational and personal potential in a safe and supportive environment
  • make the best possible progress in their learning
  • identify and change, with help if necessary, aspects of their behaviour contributory to difficulties experienced in school
  • prepare for successful reintegration with school, or
  • work towards integration with further education, training and employment.

To realise these aims, staff are committed to:

  • creating a reflective, considerate and safe community where pupils can learn peacefully and be happy
  • providing a personalised curriculum made relevant by the assessed and identified needs of each pupil
  • valuing the individual strengths which pupils and staff can equally contribute to the development of positive and co-operative relationships at the PRU
