Dear Pupils,

I am very proud and excited to tell you all about Alderwood. This is a pupil referral unit where you will be one of only 24 pupils in four classes.  PRU classes will have eight pupils and Bridge classes will have 4 pupils. We hope you will be happy here.

Alderwood was set up for pupils aged 7 to 14 who have found it difficult to do really well in mainstream schools.  It is part of Suffolk Local Authority's Special Educational Needs Local Offer.

We believe that every child and young person deserves a high quality education with interesting lessons suited to his/her needs.  Learning is at the centre of all our work.  We also aim to teach our pupils the life skills which will help them to fit more easily into mainstream schools, colleges and the world of work and to play their part as successful members of the wider community.

We hope that after spending the time you need with us you will be able to go back to your mainstream school feeling better about your learning and with the confidence to make a success of your time there.  Before that can happen we hope you will enjoy your work here.


Yours sincerely,


Lindsay Last
