Junction 16

Every day is a new day; great today better tomorrow



unction 16 team are committed to providing a service that addresses the most up to date government guidance for Alternative Provision.  Our commissioning, quality assurance and AP Officer work has been a part of many Ofsted inspections across the city, with 100% positive feedback. We know we are working hard to ensure we provide an ‘…alternative provision system that delivers timely, high-quality services and support’ and a ‘rigorous oversight of pupil placements and continual attention to the needs of the child.’ (SEND and AP Improvement Plan, Right Support, Right Place, Right Time, March 2023)

I encourage you to take the time to look through the information on our website to discover what we can offer and how we enjoy forging excellent relationships with everyone we work with and love to share the great work carried out by the young people themselves – they help us to showcase the real evidence that AP really can be the ‘Right Place’.
