         PUPIL REFERRAL  UNIT - The Bawdeswell Centre
 
The Old Schoolmaster’s House accomodates a special educational unit - A Pupil Referral Unit, part of the NorfolkPsychological Service.

It is for children and young people who are experiencing difficulties in adjusting to school life.
The Centre aims to help pupils to overcome their emotional, behavioural and educational difficulties, so that they can return to school.  That is the main objective.
If this is impractical, the emphasis for older pupils is on preparation for Further Education and employment.  For younger pupils, the emphasis is on appropriate individual educational programmes.
The unit recently received a very good OFSTED report on its standards and achievements.
