Primary Alternative Education

This provision will primarily cater for pupils from year 1 onwards who are currently open on the SEND Hub database and therefore at risk of temporary and permanent exclusions. The pupils will be spending their time at the BACT Community Hub and the day would run from 9am – 2.30pm.

Pupils will work on a scheme of work from ASDAN Key Steps (Core) or DOT COM (PSHE).

Both of these routes offer the chance to develop English and Maths skills through fun and engaging activities. There will be facilities to do cooking, stop motion animation and sport focussed activities.

The programme is based around nurture and enrichment with the main aim of re-engaging the students in mainstream education. Our core values are Inspire, engage and educate. We aim to help students learn coping strategies, behaviour management, communication skills and how to build positive relationships with adults and peers
