Alternative Provision refers to educational options outside of mainstream schools. It’s designed to support students who may face challenges in traditional settings. These challenges can include behavioural issues, mental health concerns, or difficulties with academic progress. 
One crucial aspect to consider is how mental health affects learning outcomes. When students are dealing with mental health issues, it can impact their ability to focus, concentrate, and retain information. It can also lead to decreased motivation and engagement in the learning process. 
A troubling Mind survey reveals that 2 in 3 young people receive no support for their mental health at school. The lack of access is completely unacceptable, especially considering the current youth mental health crisis. 
At LMP Action Alternative Provision, we strongly believe that mental health plays a pivotal role in an individual’s success. That’s why our approach is trauma-informed, ensuring that struggling students receive the care and attention they need, which is often lacking in mainstream schools. 
We create a safe and comfortable environment through small class sizes and personalised learning. Our staff is trained to identify signs of mental distress and provide the necessary support. We also prioritise building trusted relationships through tutoring, so students know they have someone in their corner. Additionally, we focus on social-emotional skill building, equipping students with tools to express their feelings, manage anxiety, and build self-esteem. 

Alternative Provision can provide a lifeline for students who may have struggled in mainstream education. It offers a supportive and nurturing environment where students can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially. 

All students must have access to mental health support. By fostering collaboration between alternative provision and mainstream education, we can work together to fill these gaps in care. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of young people.
