Redbridge Alternative Provision formely known as Redbridge Tuition Service is part of the New Rush Hall Group and works with pupils who are temporarily out of school.

Redbridge Alternative Provision is based in Barkingside in a well -resourced and newly refurbished building. The service consists of a key stage 3 and 4 pupil referral unit [PRU].  It also oversees the LA’s Home Tuition Service.

The PRU provides education for pupils who have been permanently excluded, those who are at risk of exclusion, school refusers and non- attenders.

All pupils follow the National Curriculum and pupils in Yr 11 work towards external accreditation such as G.C.S.E., Entry Level, and the Asdan scheme. The subjects offered to the pupils include: Maths, English, Science, ICT, Art, PSHE, MFL, Child development, Media, Leisure, History, Geography, and Preparation for working life.

Our vision is to personalise the curriculum to match the needs, abilities and aspirations of each student.

Ofsted reported: “Redbridge Tuition Service provides a good level of education. There are some outstanding features of this provision, including the quality of the curriculum and partnership work.”

Our aim is to return pupils in year’s 7 to 10 to school if deemed appropriate. Some pupils stay at the PRU for a few weeks, but many stay for up to a year.

The service has a strong focus on teaching and learning, and staff seek to change learners perceptions of themselves as learners into more positive ones. The service employs experienced teaching staff that are flexible, and can adapt their teaching styles to meet the needs of its learners

Redbridge Home Tuition Service provides education for pupils from age 5 to 16 who are temporarily out of school for a variety of reasons. The majority of the pupils have medical conditions and illnesses that preclude them from attending school.  The young person’s school refers through the Redbridge Inclusion Panel (RIP) and provides Medical Evidence (Consultant’s letter) to support the referral.

The Home Tuition Service also provides education for pupils who are out of school for other reasons including being at risk of exclusion and school refusers. These referrals come through the RIP and are funded by the school.

Pupils normally receive one to one tuition in the home.  For some pupils, especially those with anxiety and mental health issues, tuition in the home results in isolation. These pupils are taught in a one to one or small group setting at our annexes at Loxford Youth Centre and Redbridge College.

The Home Tuition Annex at Redbridge College is used to provide a safe secure environment for vulnerable pupils who are out of school for mental health/anxiety reasons. This is a KS4 group who work towards improving confidence and social skills whilst working towards a package of GCSES.
