We understand the pressure schools are under to support a wide range of pupil needs.
We help relieve some of that burden, ensuring each pupil gets the personalised support they require while allowing teachers to focus on delivering high-quality education for all.
Reducing school pressures through tailored, inclusive support for pupils
Inclusive support for pupils with unmet needs delivers the consistent support they need to self-regulate and thrive both in and out of school.
Young carers and pupils with SEND and/or SEMH needs are at a higher risk of absence. We support them to come to school more often.
Anxiety can pose a significant barrier to engagement, so tutors support pupils in school for as long as needed as part of our reintegration support.

Creating opportunities for every child to stay engaged and on roll
We understand schools are under increasing pressure to meet needs, pressure compounded by a lack of suitable school places outside of mainstream environments.
Specialist 1:1 & Group Support
Highly experienced teachers utilise a trauma-informed approach to provide personalised provision and mentorship.
Reintegration into Education
We support young people in their transition back into mainstream or special educational environments.
Complex SEND and SEMH
Our tutors and SEND Specialist Support Team have deep expertise in supporting young people with a variety of special educational needs, including those with acute SEMH needs, ADHD and ASC.
LAC & Out of County
Dedicated support for Looked After Children and those who have been moved out of county, ensuring continuity in their learning.
We offer Functional Skills Qualifications in house. Through an external partnership, we can facilitate GCSE, A-Level and some vocational examination entries, empowering young people to gain vital competencies and certifications.
ESOL & UASC Support
Support where English is a second or additional language and a potential barrier to integration into education, work or society.
We understand the challenges faced when schools see pupils' needs going unmet
We recognise that traditional classroom environments may not cater to the needs of all students. That's why we provide adaptable, flexible support services that can operate within the school, online, or in community settings.
We use a trauma-informed approach to support students who have had adverse childhood experiences. Our aim is to foster resilience, self-regulation, and a love of learning, helping students to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.
Team Around The School Model
Working closely with various stakeholders – parents, tutors, SEND specialists, local authorities - our model of needs-led support ensures rapid and effective intervention, preventing the escalation of issues.
We value the voice of your pupils and involve them in the creation of their own learning plans, empowering them to take control of their journey and aspirations.
When pupils with SEND or SEMH meeds feel their unique needs are being acknowledged and addressed, they become more receptive and comfortable in school learning environments.
Well-versed in trauma-informed practices, we acknowledge that anxiety can pose a barrier to engagement and work proactively to provide mental health support and stress mitigation strategies.
Consistent reporting on attendance and progress of our young people supports their return to school where appropriate so that staff understand progress made with education and self-regulation strategies.

At Targeted Provision, we have spearheaded a step-change for vulnerable learners in England. In the face of growing challenges in the UK's education sector - such as a shortage of appropriate school places, a lack of available professionals, and a marked increase in young people missing education due to unmet SEMH needs - we saw a pressing need for transformation in Alternative Provision.
We provide a supportive, understanding, and tailored educational environment for young people facing adversity. We are led by the principles of trauma-informed practice and the profound impact trauma can have on a young person's ability to learn, grow, and engage with the world. Our approach considers these underlying vulnerabilities, providing a supportive educational environment tailored to address and alleviate them. We are here to help young people transition into needs-appropriate provision, empower them to take control of their educational journey, and support them in developing resilience and self-regulation skills.
Our tutors are qualified teachers, with extensive experience supporting young people with SEND. Every tutor is also paired with a SEND Specialist from our central Support Team, who oversees each lesson, offers strategies tailored to individual needs and consistently monitors and report the attendance and progress of each young person referred to us. Our Support Team are also available to participate in EHCP/PEP/Strategy meetings and collate evidence for EHCNA applications when needed.
We can also offer examination entries (including GCSEs, A-Levels and Functional Skills) and post-16 life-skills packages, equipping young people with practical skills vital for work, learning and life. Additionally, we deliver English as an Additional Language (EAL) support for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (UASC), ensuring they feel seen, understood and supported in their educational journey. We also maintain out-of-county consistency, providing reliable support regardless of county barriers.
In brief, young people referred to TP receive much more than just tuition. They receive comprehensive support from trauma-informed professionals who take into account their individual circumstances, experiences, and emotional needs. This support empowers them with the confidence and emotional security needed to explore new learning opportunities and take positive steps in their educational journey.
We exist to meet the needs of young people and have no requirement for schools or Local Authorities to make a minimum number of referrals. We know that things can change last minute for a young person, and therefore will never ask for a minimum length for a referral either. We do however know that our support is most impactful when delivered over several hours in a week, so will prioritise supporting young people where requests are made for 2 or more hours per week.
We demand strict safeguarding at Targeted Provision, adopting a child-centred approach and promoting the welfare of every child and young person. This approach means keeping the child in focus when making decisions about their lives and working in partnership with them and their families. Anyone working for or on behalf of Targeted Provision will demonstrate relevant Safeguarding Training to Level 2 as a minimum. You can read our full Safeguarding Policy here.
Absolutely! We work with 150 Local Authority teams / 450 schools and would be delighted to put you in touch with some of our current partners. Please get in touch with us to arrange this.
