The Amber Valley and Erewash Support Centre is a pupil referral unit providing education to students who are at risk of permanent exclusion or who have already been permanently excluded from mainstream education. Our provision caters for students in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, at sites located in Ilkeston, Kirk Hallam, Sawley and Chesterfield. Our Academy has approximately 160 pupils on roll and is split over four key teams: • Alternative Provision • KS4 Site at Sawley • KS3 Site at Bennerley • KS2/3 Site at Kirk Hallam Whilst the majority of our students have been permanently excluded, we work closely with local school clusters and the local authority to provide education opportunities to young people who are at risk of exclusion. Such placements have been highly successful in preventing numerous permanent exclusions in Derbyshire. We are committed to working in partnership with young people, their parents and carers, their schools and other agencies to re-engage them and enable them to become successful learners and responsible citizens. Where students are able to demonstrate positive behaviour and a desire to achieve, we aim to help them transition back to mainstream school. For those who require a more alternative approach, we provide a balanced and varied curriculum, delivered through good quality teaching and learning. Whilst for many, a pupil referral unit may seem to be the end of one's academic career, we see it as merely a change in direction. Further information about our academy can be found on the website at www.avesc.derbyshire.sch.uk
