Independent Alternative Provision (IAP) ensures the provision of a suitable education for all learners who, because of exclusion, illness or other reasons, would not otherwise be able to attend school.
In March 2021 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills approved the commencement of a procurement process for a new Pseudo Dynamic Purchasing System (P-DPS) to facilitate the purchasing of IAP to support the educational requirements of individual children (decision ES16 (20/21) refers). A competitive procurement exercise has been undertaken and the County Council is now in a position to award places on to the P-DPS to the successful providers.
