Secondary Placement Panel (SPP)

Schools are able to refer pupils for Alternative Provision, including J16 full and part-time placements through the Secondary Placement Panel (SPP). In addition where a school has had cause to permanently exclude a pupil this young person will also be discussed by SPP and it is important that we have as much information as possible to make the best possible decisions re next steps for this pupil.

Schools are asked to complete the attached referral form for ALL referrals to SPP

SPP meets approximately every 3 weeks to consider referrals and review progress of pupils previously referred. All meetings are held at our Bridge Street site.

Ypu can download the SPP Referral Form from here:
