The primary aim of Coritani Academy is to provide early intervention for schools/academies and students and to help students re-engage with their learning in a mainstream setting. Due to this the majority of placements at Coritani Academy are short term, with students dual registered with their referring school; this will be subject to regular review. Full time or longer term placements are available where it is clear that an early return to mainstream school would not be appropriate.
Isle Education Trust will only admit students to Coritani Academy in line with this admissions policy and following referral from an academy, a maintained school or by a Local Authority.
Coritani Academy will be run in accordance with all equalities law. It will admit students aged between 7 and 18 years who have been referred to the schools’ admissions panel through one of the referral routes set out below:
- Referred by an Academy which, under general powers in the Articles of the Academy Trust may send students off-site to an alternative provision Academy as part of early intervention measures to address behaviour
- Named students on application from the Local Authority, in accordance with a School Attendance Order1 after consultation with the Secretary of State
- Referred by a maintained school or academy when they have a duty under Section 100 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006
- Referred by the Local Authority where they have a duty under section 19 of the Education Act 1996
- Referred by a maintained school under powers set out in section 29(A) of the Education Act
Coritani Academy does not accept applications from parents/carers or self-referrals from potential students.
