Secondary Schools and Alternative Education (April 2011) 30/05/2011


Schools in this study

The information for this evaluation was collected from 44 secondary schools during Terms 3 and 4 of 2010 as part of their scheduled education reviews. The schools were from a range of deciles and sizes. Fourteen of them were managing schools for AE, either as part of a cluster, or as a single managing school.

Nine, including four area schools, had not recently placed a student in AE (or some equivalent such as Activity Centres). Another school had tried unsuccessfully to place a student in 2009. One school had become estranged from its AE provider and had stopped using the service. [7]


Several students who had left the school had nevertheless been placed with the Alternative Education provider (under that schools name). The school could not explain how this had happened.
