EdStart – Alternative Provision

EdStart Specialist Independent School first opened in South Manchester in September 2010, and now operates from an additional four sites in Salford, Bolton, Bury and Oldham. Its primary function is Alternative Provision, serving the regions schools and young people by developing a suitable environment and curriculum to match their varying needs. Graded 'Good' by Ofsted (March 2019), staff are now hard at work working towards achieving an 'Outstanding' school. With various academic and vocational qualifications being offered our aim is to re-engage young people, creating opportunities which lead to reintegration to school, further education or employment. Each pupil receives an individual learning plan and is supported throughout the programme by our highly skilled teachers, learning mentors and youth workers.

School Update
Having consulted with the DfE yesterday, we are encouraged to hear that they support our decision to stay open. We will be open for all our pupils as normal, and our usual attendance procedures apply.

We are pretty great but don’t just take our word for it!
