As an Alternative Provision, we like to do things a little different to our mainstream friends across the Local Authority.
Whilst we offer some similar experiences, there are a range of differences that enable students to follow a curriculum that suits their needs and interests whilst preparing them for post 16 education, employment or training.
Our classes are small, typically no more than 6 students and support is often available from Teaching Assistants and Behaviour Support Workers where appropriate.
Most students will follow the same curriculum offer but this may change depending upon need. Each student is assessed upon entry and the appropriate learning pathway identified from the outset and reviewed to ensure that progress is tracked and provision changed if necessary.
At The Academy of Central Bedfordshire we understand how important it is to ensure that Parents and Carers can be provided with all the information they need to help our students with their learning and development. To help you stay up to date with the latest information from The ACB, please see below for a collection of the most commonly used links for Parents and Carers within our website:
We like to ensure that we are available to support our young people and their families through the positive times as well as the challenges. We are happy to meet with parents to discuss some of the challenges and offer advice. Where advice cannot be given from within the school’s resources we do have access to a range of universal services that can be accessed through the Local Authorities Early Help process.
The Early Help Assessment (EHA) is a way of bringing together appropriate and relevant services to ensure children, young people and their families get the help and support they need. Find out more by downloading this leaflet.
