PUPILS and staff at a Belton pupil referral unit (PRU) are celebrating after Ofsted ruled their unit was “outstanding” and its students were “thriving”.

The Eastern Area PRU includes the Compass Centre at Waveney First School in Belton , which uses art therapy, music therapy and psychological support to help young people back into school and works closely with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).

Inspectors said the unit was outstanding in its capacity to go from strength to strength, praising teaching, learning and management.

The PRU works with more than 100 young people in the east of the county who have been excluded, are at risk of exclusion or are unable to attend school because of medical conditions.

Inspectors said the PRU worked effectively, as part of the Partnership of East Norfolk Schools, to help reduce exclusions and support students. Staff were commended for the good relationships they develop with pupils and the high expectations placed on them.
