Impact Sefton Secondary Pupil Referral Unit

Visions and Values


IMPACT is committed to inclusion. Part of the PRU’s strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, difficulty, disability, attainment levels and background.


All IMPACT’s learners will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to achieve their personal best through ensuring that:

  • All learning is relevant, meaningful, and purposeful

  • Learning is planned, delivered, assessed and reviewed with students

  • The curriculum meets interests and aspirations of all learners

  • All learners enjoy and achieve through developing the skills to become independent learners

  • All learners will understand and be given the opportunity to develop their personal learning and thinking skills

  • Opportunities for innovation and creativity are embedded in all learning activities

  • Learners have the opportunity and support to improve their skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT across the curriculum.

  • Accurate and meaningful assessment will be conducted regularly through a range of methods which include peer, self, teacher, APP, formative and summative assessment.

  • Assessments will shared with students, parents and carers. Targets and strategies for improvement will be clearly identified

  • Appropriate tracking and monitoring systems will be implemented for each key stage

  • All learners make progress in line with expectations and targets, particularly those with special and additional needs

  • New technologies will be used to enhance and enrich learning across the curriculum
