A library of standard policies and procedures for One In A Million Alternative Education Provision are below:
One In A Million Alternative Education Provision will work with the Local Authority, all appropriate professionals, partner agencies, local schools, parents and carers, and most significantly, with each young person to ensure they understand the admissions process and are able to make informed decisions. The intake for the Provision will be drawn from a district wide population.
SUPPORTING LEARNING FOR ALL:
Learners with a Statement of Special Educational Needs:
Young people with a statement of special educational needs will be admitted after appropriate consultation with relevant professionals such as the Bradford DPRU SENCo or Headteacher/Principal/SENCo from the learner’s ‘home school’. Admission will only be secured once we are convinced that doing so shall fully meet the needs and of each young person.
LOOKED AFTER CHILDREN:
Looked after children who are in the care of a local authority, or are being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (Section 22(1) of The Children Act 1989) will be subject to the admissions criteria of this policy. However, where fitting, such young people will receive appropriate support from One In A Million Alternative Education Provision to ensure that their admission to us is managed effectively.
CHILDREN WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL MEDICAL OR SOCIAL NEED:
Supported by a written recommendation or referral from an independent professional such as a hospital consultant/paediatrician or social worker. The letter should explain why it is appropriate that the child attend One In A Million Alternative Education Provision and why and how the appropriate support can be provided by all members of the One In A Million staff.
