Alternative Provision

We have been added to the provider list for Norfolk County Council. We are not on the website version as this is updated in May. We are registered on the councils spreadsheet and a call to the lead advisor will confirm this.

We provide outdoor learning, life skills and accredited workplace qualifications to help reach and engage the young person to move forward and develop. We add counselling services to all our courses that could be moral building to cognitive behaviour therapies. All our courses focus on the mental wellbeing of each induvial. We offer Alternative Provision (AP) bespoke education packages in collaboration with the school/parent/young person.

We offer placements for KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4. We have a published progress booklet that we have used with over 3000 children that helps link and collaborate learning that takes place which is linked to the National Curriculum. The booklets have been used by school leaders and OFSTED inspectors when evaluating progress. We support young people with learning, emotional, mental health and behavioural needs.
