Alternative Education

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 Uttoxeter and the day would run from 9am – 2.30pm. 

We offer the chance to develop English and Maths skills through fun and engaging activities. There will be facilities to access cooking,, life skills and sport focussed activities, alongside external visits to Forest School programmes local to the area.

The programme is based around nurture and enrichment with the main aim of reengaging the students into 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

Secondary Alternative Education

Our Secondary Alternative education provision caters for students’ year 7 up to year 11. (12-16 years old).

The sessions are run for students that are struggling to engage in education for a variety of reasons, including behaviour, poor or non-attendance, or students that have been permanently excluded from mainstream school.

During the sessions that run from 9.00am – 2.30pm students have the opportunity to work towards a recognised qualification to support them moving onto their next steps. Alongside this, students will be supported in building their self-confidence and self-esteem as well as playing sport.

As a trust we build great relationships with Schools and the community and promote a wraparound support for young people.

We also offer 1:1 mentoring sessions that can be delivered in school or at Burton Albion Community Centre’s, sessions can be from 1 hour up to a full day.

All sessions delivered can be from 6 weeks to the whole academic year.
