THE CONTEXT :
Alternative Provision (AP) is contextually defined as a setting that children and young people attend on a part-time or full-time basis away from their regular school setting, teachers and timetable due to them not being able to engage in mainstream education.

It is major concern that those accountable have not always visited or regularly revisited to check that the AP continues to be fit for purpose
