Supporting Documents for School Operations Leader (Maternity Cover until May 2025) - Sandwell Community School


Established in April 2013, Sandwell Community School for Alternative Provision was created by bringing together the five secondary Pupil Referral Units (PRU’s) that serviced the Sandwell Borough. This enabled the school to develop a consistent approach to its education provision by using the expertise of individual units to create a whole school ethos. Our focus is always to support our students not just academically but also socially and emotionally to prepare them for their next stage in life. Our highly trained and dedicated staff are there to encourage our students to reach their full potential and often change the negative attitudes that students have developed during the difficulties they may have faced in mainstream school.
