For governance purposes The Poplar Adolescent Unit Education is categorised as a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU). This means that the Board of Governors is called a Management Committee and Governors are called Members. Governance of a PRU works in the same way as in a Local Authority maintained school. Members of the Management Committee work with the senior leaders in the strategic development of the unit.  They support the Headteacher and staff as well as offering constructive challenge ensuring that the unit achieves the very best it can for all pupils.

The core functions of the Members are:
