Alternative provision schools to be created in Carlisle and Barrow

New alternative schools to help vulnerable children failing within today's 'linear and academic' curriculum are set to be created in Carlisle and Barrow.

CounciL bosses have backed a plan to develop two 40 place units to provide specialised education for pupils with social, emotional or mentaL health needs.

It is hoped the move will halt the escalating number of youngsters being excluded from mainstream schools and alleviate pressure on the area’s overstretched pupil referral units.
