A Better Alternative
TLG's NEW BRIEFING PAPER:
No student in unregistered Alternative Provision: How and Why?
We know that every child deserves a high-quality education in an environment that is fully equipped to meet their needs and held to account accordingly.
Alternative Provision (AP) schools are educational settings for children who, for whatever reason, were unable to cope with and flourish in a mainstream environment. However, the law currently allows Alternative Provision (AP) centres which meet certain criteria to not register, but still legally operate. Local Authorities refer children to these unregulated provisions, meaning thousands of students across England are at risk of sub-standard education from an unaccountable provider. This is simply unacceptable.
"We experienced the benefits that come with a network of registered AP schools, sharing of practice, curriculum intent, professional knowledge and leadership systems. This all results in successful outcomes for young people who may otherwise have fallen through the cracks of our sector." - Tim Morfin, Founder and Chief Executive
