Alternative Provision

Alternative Provision provides education for children or young people, including those who cannot attend mainstream school due to social, emotional and mental health needs and medical needs. Additionally, it makes provision for those children and young people who are at risk of or have already been permanently excluded. The Local Authority maintains a list of registered alternative providers that it has approved, following checks on the quality of the provision and safeguarding arrangements. A referral to alternative provision must be made in consultation with the child or young person, and their parents / carers.
