About Caradon Alternative Provision Academy

School type
Academy, ages 5 to 16
School size
24 pupils enrolled
Age range
5 to 16

aradon Academy provides education for mainstream pupils who have been permanently excluded or are at risk of permanent exclusion or on an intervention basis. Caradon Academy is based in Liskeard, South East Cornwall; a region that includes some of the most socially and economically deprived rural areas within the county of Cornwall. The academy is a mainstream provision for pupils designated as disengaged. It is most effective when used as an early intervention strategy to re-engage pupils with their learning. Caradon Academy can take up to 40 pupils and is a mixed sex academy for pupils who have been permanently excluded or are on intervention programmes between Key Stage 1 – Key Stage 4. Caradon Academy is inspected as a mainstream provision and as such have to meet Ofsted criteria with regard to attendance, behaviour, attainment and pupil progress. In the last Ofsted inspection (2018) Caradon Academy was rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted outcome.

We work closely with all of the secondary and primary schools within our partnership to ensure the needs of those most vulnerable pupils are met. Our curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of our pupils and staff work extremely hard to ensure pupils are given every opportunity to succeed and aspire. We work closely with a diverse range of outside agencies both statutory and voluntary so that our young people can access the support and guidance they need. At Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 pupils follow a personalised learning programme linked to the national curriculum, whilst at Key Stage 4 pupils will follow a personalised learning programme which is linked to both academic qualifications and/or a vocational route, which can include work experience. The pathway followed by the pupil will be dependent on their educational needs and may include elements of on-line learning.

Pupils access the academy either through permanent exclusion or as a result of being referred to the pupil placement panel or medical pupil referral panel. This panel, made up of local schools, acts as the placement panel for pupils into and out of the academy. It is expected that a pupil in KS2 will access the academy for a maximum of 4 terms, whilst at KS3 a pupil will access the academy for up to a maximum of 3 terms. It is acknowledged that pupils in KS4 may spend the whole of that key stage in an academy.
