COVID19 Changes to Ways of working and Contact Information

 

Please note the Progressions Team staff are all working remotely during COVID19 lockdown and are contactable on their mobile numbers. There are also changes to some email addresses (for Kirsty Mell and Malcolm Wigby), who can only be contacted on Office365 accounts.  Please refer to the contact table for full details.

 

Providers are being advised to work remotely with the existing vulnerable AP learners - in line with the government guidance until further notice, and are providing a mixture of the following services.

 

  • Safe & Well Calls to AP learners 

  • Signposting & monitoring of learners and their families who are signposted to relevant services 

  • Online learning, work packs, mentoring and wellbeing support

 

Progressions Team – What we do

 

The Progressions Team staff work with Sheffield schools in matching learners with alternative provision from within our Alternative Provision Network. The team are able to meet with learners, school staff and parent/carers to ensure that the learners are given information and guidance relating to the provision on offer.

 

In addition, we work closely with multi-agency workers to support the young people, help monitor attendance and achievements, and work to seek solutions to day-to-day problems that may arise. The team also monitors contractual compliance and Quality Assurance of provision across the network.

 

Intensive Re-engagement for KS2/KS3 and KS4

 

The Intensive Re-engagement programmes are aimed at:-

  • Students struggling with the transition from primary to secondary education

  • KS3 & KS4 students who may benefit from a period of intensive support or are at risk of exclusion

  • open to Y7 (Secondary transition) and Y8/Y9 students (KS3).

  • KS4 to support the transition at Y11 to support the prevention of NEETs

Courses are available for a fixed period of 12 weeks.  The aim must be to re-engage these learners and reintegrate them back into mainstream schooling or post 16 education and training.

 

The current AP Directory where you can view the range of placements is available in our downloads section below, along with a selection of information and forms for your use.

 

The AP referral form has been updated; Straight AP and Intensive Reengagement programmes now have separate referral forms. These should be used in place of the previous version for any new students you wish to consider for AP when face to face learning restarts.  No new starts between now and July 2020, unless there is a change in government advice.

 

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of the Progressions Team, please contact them on the relevant numbers in the table below. 

 

*Note for parents and guardians - all inquiries should be made via your child's secondary school.
