Placement fees

To offer this quality of alternative provision education, we anticipate there will be a cost for local authorities and schools commissioning individual placements as follows:

  • KS1/KS2 £10,700
  • KS3 £10,900
  • KS4 £16,000
  • KS5 £19,300* 

These costs (with the exception of KS5 places) are for full time equivalent pupil placements after taking into account the £10,000 per place base level of funding provided by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to alternative provision free schools.

*£10K base funding from ESFA does not apply
