We currently offer a school support and intervention programme that aims to reduce and ultimately prevent fixed term exclusions, provide support to schools with challenging behaviour, lack of engagement in learning and poor attendance, offer part time, short term off site provision and supported reintegration.

What is the offer? – Gold schools

Gold schools will receive one member of staff (HLTA or working towards) who will be deployed on their site for 2.5 days.  Their role can include attendance monitoring and intervention, teaching small groups, working in the school’s own inclusion centre or equivalent, supporting the management of challenging behaviour, assisting pupils to reintegrate into mainstream education. 

Gold schools will also be able to refer up to five Key Stage 3 pupils per day for two days per week to offsite provision at The Albion Foundation.

  • Breakfast Club will operate from 8.30am until 9.30am
  • All pupils referred must be on a school roll.  TAF will monitor and report on attendance using SIMS but will not be solely responsible for any pupils

Off-site provision at The Albion Foundation – Curriculum

The ultimate aim of the short term off-site provision at The Albion Foundation is to reintegrate young people back into mainstream.  The focus during every lesson and activity will be positive behaviour for learning, engagement and interaction with staff and peers.

Mixed ability small groups led by QTS or HLTA will deliver fun / popular culture based English, Maths and Science activities in the morning and PE, Urban Arts and PSHE in the afternoon.  Schemes of work will be developed in partnership with schools. 

It remains the responsibility of the partner school to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum is available for each pupil referred.

If the pupil has an Education and Health Care plan you will need to discuss this before any placement can be confirmed.

Costs can be discussed depending on the package your school would like.
