At Bailey Street AP Academy we use Alternative Provision (AP) and Enrichment Programs to re-engage pupils in their education and learning where we believe the AP or Enrichment activity can meet the specific identified needs of the pupil.
AP and Enrichment programs are something in which a young person participates as part of their regular timetable, often away from the school site and not led by Bailey Street school staff. They are typically interactive, and project focussed, they teach useful workplace and life skills, some offer qualifications in addition.
We have clear procedures in place to monitor pupil attendance, progress and achievements made on the AP or Enrichment provisions and we continually review to ensure that the provision is still meeting the needs that have been identified.
Below you can find more information about some of the AP Provisions and Enrichment Activities that we may offer.
If you have any questions about our program of AP and Enrichment Activities please contact:

Beechcliffe farm is a working farm set in a quiet rural area in Staffordshire where pupils work alongside the farmer to experience all aspects of farm life. They learn about the skills that are valued within the industry.
Pupils assist in the handling and care of livestock, as well as learning about animal anatomy, animal welfare, and the agricultural industry. They gain invaluable work experience as they learn to perform tasks to industry standards.
At the end of the provision pupils share a home cooked meal in the farmhouse kitchen.
The animals allow a therapeutic approach to learning and offers excellent learning opportunities for kinesthetic, audio and visual learners.
Learning aims for this provision include:
This provision gives pupils an insight into the wide range of careers that area available within the farming industry.
Pupils have the opportunity to meet with other professionals such as vets, agricultural inspectors, agricultural mechanics, suppliers and purchasers.
