Following the release of the 'Statutory Guidance for Alternative Provision' from the DfE in January 2013, the PRU Management Committee was reconfigured.

The Chair of the Management Committee is Janette Devine who can be contacted through the local authority.

The Committee is made up of senior representatives of local Primary, Special and High schools and staff from Alternative Provision.

The PRU Management Committee has a strategic role in the setting out and monitoring of the aims and objectives of the unit to ensure children are safe, have their needs met and receive a good standard of education.
