Provision of One to One Support to Children and Young People

The Council is seeking to establish a framework of providers of One to One Support to Children and Young People. There are 3 separate Lots as follows: Lot 1 - One to One Tuition and Support to Children and Young People in Care Lot 2 - SEND Supplementary Teaching Provision for non-looked after children and young people. Lot 3 - SEND Supplementary out of Area Teaching Support LOT 1: The remit of the Derby City Virtual School is to promote and improve the education of children in care to Derby City Council (The Council). The Virtual School is a specialist service working with children and young people in care to promote high aspirations, access to and engagement in high quality learning with a view to narrowing the achievement gaps for our children and young people. It is vital that the educational outcomes of children and young people in care are improved. Some require additional support to engage in the learning process in order to fulfil their potential. LOTS 2 & 3: Derby City Council is responsible for organising provision to support special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), including, but not limited to, learners with Educational, Health and Care Plans (EHCP). Whilst most of our SEND provision will take place within schools within the Derby City area (both specialist and mainstream), on occasion it is necessary to commission short to medium term support to work with parents or carers to provide a home learning package. Examples of this may be where a learner is refusing to attend their main education setting because of COVID-related anxiety, or where a placement has broken down and the child or young person is not in education.
