Outstanding summer KS4 results

8th September 2017

The Elland academy is an Alternative Provision Free school academy that provides full and part-time education and support for children and young people in KS2-KS4 who for a variety of reasons are unable to access mainstream education. The most prevalent category of need identified is Social emotional and mental health (SEMH) and additionally described as being at risk of permanent exclusion. We work with 14 schools across the city and neighbouring Local authorities. There has been key support in disengagement, poor attendance and underachievement and with robust transition plans to Post 16 courses to ensure none become NEET.
