Educational Diversity

Educational Diversity is a pupil referral unit providing for pupils who are unable to attend mainstream school due to their social, emotional, behavioural or medical difficulties.  Many of the pupils are amongst the most vulnerable young people in Blackpool.  Our highly motivated staff look to prepare our pupils for the demands and opportunities of the 21st century by offering an individual personalised curriculum and lifelong set of values.  A pupil’s placement with the service is as a result of a permanent exclusion, an agreed managed move or through a dual register arrangement. We work with our pupils to assist their return to mainstream education.  Educational Diversity also has an Outreach Service who support pupils in school.
