Service description:

Fair Access Protocols exist to ensure that access to education is secured quickly for children who have no school place but for whom a place at a mainstream school or alternative provision is appropriate, and to ensure that all schools in an area admit their fair share of children with challenging behaviour, including children excluded from other schools. Along with devolved funding and responsibility for alternative provision, an agreed protocol encourages local authorities and schools to work together in partnership to improve behaviour, tackle persistent absence and help support improving behaviour partnerships.
The Vulnerable Learners Panel (previously known as Statutory and Complex Issues Panel) monitors and advises on complex pupil placements, and the placements of vulnerable children and young people. (It is part of the Children and Young People’s Services Directorate)
