Timelines for PRUs converting to academies

Guidance for pupil referral units wishing to convert to academies, including the deadline for when documents need to be processed.



Pupil referral unit (PRU) converters open as an alternative provider academy on the first day of the month. In order to open on the chosen month, all the necessary paperwork associated with the conversion must be completed by the previous month.

This guidance indicates the final dates for documents and other information to be sent to the Department for Education project lead and the Education Funding Agency (EFA) in order to ensure the academy can open on their chosen date.
