Mapping alternative provision

Share this page:

Use the map to find the schools for excluded children across England. The map displays the distribution of children in alternative provision schools using interactive “bubbles” across three levels: regional, local authority and school level.

Pupil numbers

The numbers in the centre of each bubble change according to the number of pupils educated in alternative provision at each of the geographical levels (regional, local authority and school-level).

3310

Ofsted rating

The border colour on each bubble displays the proportion of children at each geographical level that are educated in alternative provision by Ofsted rating. The following colours correspond to the different Ofsted ratings:

Outstanding

Good

Requires Improvement

Inadequate

No Ofsted rating

Swipe left or right to display each metric in turn (Ofsted rating, GCSEs, Destinations, Attendance, Qualified teachers and Confidence rating)

Local authority quality metrics

The Centre for Social Justice has identified five “cold spots” where excluded children are not accessing quality education: Tameside, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Newcastle and Sheffield. But many more invisible cold spots may exist, as the government publishes meaningful data on less than half of excluded children in England.

The table below displays the available data on quality of alternative provision and outcomes for each local authority. Acknowledging that these measures provide a limited picture of the quality of education, IntegratED researchers are currently developing benchmarks to capture more accurately what good alternative provision looks like.
