About the Place2Learn service

The Place2Learn virtual classroom is an alternative form of education for young people who are unable to access mainstream provision

Aims

Place2Learn aims to:

  • provide a supportive environment in which every young person can achieve their potential
  • ensure that pupils can move seamlessly onto their next stage of education or training. This might be through reintegration back into school or on to college at the end of Y11
  • offer every pupil a curriculum that is engaging and relevant
  • work closely with parents, carers and professionals to ensure that the individual pupil's needs are central to the service provided
Service delivery

A dedicated team of teachers, technician, administration staff and co-ordinator, use a virtual classroom and other online resources to deliver teaching. They provide a tailored service to meet each pupil’s individual needs.

Pupils feel challenged and motivated whilst learning online from their home, education centre or school.

As part of a wider support package, P2L can offer an inclusive environment for learning and when the time is right, help facilitate a smooth reintegration back into school or college.

Lessons

The Place2Learn team teaches live lessons in English, Mathematics, ICT and Science, at key stages 2, 3 and 4, with topic based lessons included at KS2.

Place2Learn pupils have commented that they enjoy learning online as it enables them to talk to new people and learn in a different way.
