About Us

The Buckinghamshire Primary Pupil Referral Unit was formed in September 2011 with the amalgamation of The Oaks (Amersham), Woodlands (High Wycombe) and Pathways (Aylesbury).

We provide support for children experiencing significant social, emotional or behavioural difficulties in their mainstream primary school. Children may be supported by outreach or by attendance at one of our units. We serve all maintained primary schools in Buckinghamshire.

How successful are we?

  • Following a dual-registered placement with the PRU in 2018/19, just 14.8% (9/61) of pupils received a fixed period of exclusion from their school and none were permanently excluded.
