Alternative Provision

Alternative Provision is the cornerstone of education for students not best suited to mainstream education. Here at The Genesis Academy, we take time and care to understand their personal issues and barriers to education. As a result we have successfully developed evidence-based programmes specific for students with Mental ill-health, behaviour issues, and Special Education Needs (ASD, ADHD, ODD).

KS1 & KS2

Supporting Primary and Junior Schools and Local Authorities to deliver the National Curriculum to disengaged students, the Thrive Programme utilizes small group classes, 1-1 support, mentoring and family systemic therapy to help deal with core underlying issues and educational development. Our Curriculum also gives individuals and groups the opportunity to access our outdoor curriculum including; Gardening & Horticulture, Animal Care, Communication & Life Skills, Pottery, Indoor Climbing, Arts and Crafts and Drama.


With a key focus on re-integration into mainstream schooling, our focused and methodical approach to academic upskilling and behaviour interventions supports and encourages students to develop the personal skills and characteristics to reintegrate successfully back into mainstream, whilst giving them the opportunity and insight into the vocational and career opportunities awaiting them long term.



Co-collaborating with councils, authorities, academies, multi-agency teams and trusts, we provide bespoke education packages for learners interested in vocational, technical and academic subjects. With the flexibility of 20 different subjects, alongside our expertise in behavior management and emotional development, our dedicated team effectively works with students to achieve educational success and maximize their long term prospects.


‘The overwhelming majority of pupils had positive comments to make about the provision, what they were learning, how well they were supported and the impact the provision was having on their behaviour, attitudes, attendance and outcomes at school.’
