YOUR QUESTIONS

Home tuition for student who has frequent short absences

Home tuition for student who has frequent short absences

Can home tuition happen if the pupil does not have the stated 3 consecutive weeks of absence, but who has frequent short absences due to a chronic illness?

Yes, this needs to be negotiated with the school and LAs have put in support for pupils depending on their needs.

List of alternative education establishments

List of alternative education establishments

I'm looking to find a list of alternative education establishments more suited to my daughter's needs. She has recently received a diagnosis of Autism, and even with support is very unhappy in mainstream school. 

The simple answer is that there is not a list of alternative education establishments. Your local authority website should have details of all maintained schools in your area, mainstream and special schools and units. Some specialist units will be based in mainstream school. You may have done this already but we would suggest that you talk to the SENCo at your daughter’s school to see if adjustments can be made. There has been a growing demand for specialist provision for children diagnosed with Autistic spectrum disorders some schools now refer to themselves as serving children with complex needs. There are some independents schools such as those run by the National Autistic Society. In most cases your daughter would need an Education Health and Care Plan to be considered for specialist schools/provision.

Best practice examples of Personal Education Plans

Best practice examples of Personal Education Plans

I deliver education to medical needs young people on the internet. Do you have any 'best practice' examples of Personal Education Plans you could share with me? 

At CCHS we use a variety of formats to record planning and outcomes for individual students. The format we use is dependent on the nature of the work undertaken. We have developed these over the years and find that we revise and adapt regularly to ensure we can record the necessary information while aiming to limit time spent on duplicating information. CCHS uses a web based recording system.
