The Pupil Placement Service based at Petersfield Campus caters for KS3 and 4 pupils from Petersfield Campus on a variety of flexible and alternative curricula. It also offers a ‘buy in’ service to mainstream schools for KS3 and 4 pupils at risk of permanent exclusion to pro-actively re-engage them in their mainstream school. Pupils on a fixed term exclusion from their mainstream schools are also taught through the Pupil Placement Service.
Cost Structure: The ‘buy in’ service is not funded by the Local Authority therefore there is a charge to meet staffing, administration and resourcing costs. This is reviewed annually and is usually in line with the rate of inflation. It is also reviewed tri-annually by the LA Auditors who make recommendations.
