Alternative Provision

Local authorities are responsible for arranging suitable education for permanently excluded pupils, and for other pupils who – because of illness or other reasons – would not receive suitable education without such arrangements being made.

  • Governing bodies of schools are responsible for arranging suitable full-time education from the sixth day of a fixed period exclusion
  • Schools may also direct pupils off-site for education, to help improve their behaviour
  • Statutory guidance sets out the Government’s expectations of local authorities and maintained schools who commission alternative provision and pupil referral units.
