Maple Medical PRU – Values, Visions and Aims
At Maple we value everyone, staff, volunteers and pupils alike and our aim is to create an educational provision that is safe, caring, nurturing and inclusive and enables pupils to learn and staff to grow. We respect equality, individuality and achievement at all levels of ability and age. It is also our vision to provide a happy and stimulating environment where pupils can achieve their full potential despite the difficulties and barriers they may face. We aim to remove as many barriers to learning as possible. We have high expectations of teaching and learning and reward achievement.
Maple Medical is a Pupil Referral Unit for school aged children in Doncaster which provides an education for children with medical needs and/or a diagnosis of ASD with an EHCP. There are a variety of routes of referral;
- Doncaster Councils Joint Resources Panel, which will typically look at referrals from CAMHS (Child and Adolescence Mental Health)
- SEN panel, which looks at referrals for children with an EHCP who have a diagnosis of ASD
- Midwives for school aged mothers to be who then have access to our on-site nursery once baby has been born
- Medics who refer physically ill children, typically, but not limited to, consultants, GP’s and physiotherapy

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is funding provided to schools and academies to address inequalities in educational outcomes for disadvantaged children.
All students within Maple Medical PRU who have been identified as being disadvantaged enables Maple to request funding from the pupils mainstream school on a pro rata basis.
At Maple we have the autonomy to decide how to use the Pupil Premium at a local level to ensure best impact, whilst also having the accountability for what should be an improvement in attainment/achievement for students in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding.
PSHE provision at Maple Medical PRU is designed to meet the individual needs of pupils and is based on the collaboration and support of local agencies and other schools as well as following the PSHE Association Programme of Study where appropriate. The Scheme of Work is intended as a guide and content may be amended/omitted to meet the individual needs of pupils within Maple.
Local Agencies play an important role in supporting the teaching of PSHE and supplement the topics and issues taught by staff. Staff work closely with CAHMS support workers who regularly visit Jasp pupils for one to one sessions. A School Nurse from the School Nursing service visits Maple once every half term for an afternoon drop in session and pupils are offered an opportunity to meet her individually for a one to one session. Formal referrals are also made by staff at Maple for any pupil who needs extra input. The School Nurse also supplements teaching in any area which affects health for example, smoking alcohol, cancer prevention.
