Alternative (Medical/other) provision
All referrals for Alternative (Medical/other) provision should be made by the school that the student is on roll at by completing a referral form (online) that must be accompanied by a consultant’s letter stating that the student is medically unfit to attend school.
Alternative (Medical/other) provision is an interim provision, not a substitute for school. The aim is always to reintegrate the student back into full-time mainstream education.
Once the case has been considered and accepted by the weekly referral panel the Head of Alternative (Medical/other) provision will be in touch to organise a meeting. At the meeting, information will be shared and forms signed.
Tuition is delivered by fully qualified secondary school teachers. We also liaise with mainstream schools to ensure that as much as possible students can keep up with the work their own classes are covering.
Students attending the Norman Jackson Centre will be provided with a bespoke timetable depending on the amount of education they are able to access.
A review is held every 8-10 weeks to assess progress and make plans for the next step.
