The aim of the framework and this lot is to assist us in meeting our duties as outlined below:

— Section 19 Education Act 1996: to deliver full time education to pupils of statutory school age who due to exclusion, illness or other reason may not receive full time education,

— Section 61 Children and Families Act: a local authority may arrange for any special educational provision it has decided us necessary for a child or young person for whom it is responsible to be made otherwise than in a school or post 16 institution,

— To secure sufficient suitable education and training provision and enable the participation in education and training of 16-18 year olds (up to 25 for those with EHC plans).

Such children may have a range of barriers to learning, have special educational needs and/or be looked after.

It is expected delivery will be mostly within Norfolk, although there may be a need in other local authorities. On occasion there will be a requirement to support students already in school either where there might be risk of exclusion or where they need additional tutoring to support learning where there may have been gaps in their education or where they are awaiting a school place having moved placement.

II.2.14)Additional information

The majority of the Contracts are expected to be for up to 1 term, in exceptional circumstances and to ensure continuity of delivery, Contracts awarded under the framework may have a maximum total duration of up to 5 years.
