Preventative Programmes: These are bespoke programmes to be delivered for the purposes of preventing exclusion of individual or groups of children and young people on a fixed term or permanent basis. Such programmes will not in the main form part of the core educational entitlement or take children and young people off site for extended or regular periods of time. Programmes will vary in length, according to the needs of the individual or group and the agreement between provider referrer. The Lead Authority s understanding of the legislation relating to the registration of alternative provision with Ofsted is at appendix B. School Statutory Obligations The Framework does not remove or affect any of the statutory obligations and duties upon schools in relation to the provision of education or the exclusion of children and young people from school. Further, it does not affect the agreed practice in relation to this activity locally. Any child or young person placed by a school in alternative education provision, either full or part time, remains on the roll of that school and responsibility for delivering the full time statutory education offer and all other duties in respect of that child remains with the school. Where a child or group of children are engaged in a preventative programme, whether on or off site, they remain the responsibility of the school. Specifically, the commissioning school remains responsible for the monitoring and tracking of progress of individual children and young people and confirming that the provision given is of good quality, value for money and meets the pupil s needs. If schools or academies purchase alternative educational provision from Providers not listed on the Framework, the referring school or other body must ensure the provision meets required standards and that appropriate contracting arrangements are in place. 3
