Liz supports alternative education provider

I was recently contacted by Educ8, an organisation which provides alternative education for secondary school pupils both nationally and in Leicester West. The organisation supports pupils who for a wide range of reasons thrive in a non-mainstream educational setting, or may have complex needs.

While the Government has asked schools to remain open to the most vulnerable children and the children of key workers, Educ8 had found difficulties in delivering this after the closure of their Leicester West venue.

Having raised the difficulties Educ8 was facing with Leicester City Council, a new venue will now be found in Leicester West meaning that Educ8 will be able to continue supporting its most vulnerable students, and children of key workers, in line with Government guidance on social distancing.
