Apple Tree Farm What we do

Alternative Provision

Alternative Provision Education at Apple Tree Farm

Apple Tree Farm is proud to offer a growing range of alternative educational provision for children and young people who are between educational settings or unable to access their current educational provision. Our farm provides a unique and supportive environment where learning is integrated with hands-on activities and therapeutic experiences.

Early Intervention and Preventative Measures

Schools and Local Authorities can commission our Alternative Provision as an early intervention or preventative measure, helping to address the needs of students in a holistic and engaging manner. Our sessions are designed to support individual learning and development, offering an effective alternative to traditional educational settings.

Tailored Learning Experiences

Our alternative provision includes farm-based sessions that typically last more than three hours and can extend to a full day, multiple days per week. These sessions allow key workers to incorporate academic skills through daily farm tasks, while also teaching detailed knowledge about animal care and management. By engaging in real-world activities, students can develop practical skills and gain valuable experience.

We are also approved to deliver the AQA Unit Award Scheme, providing students with the opportunity to achieve accredited learning outcomes (see our Learning and Development page for more details).

Personalised Approach

We understand that each child’s needs are unique, and our alternative provision is highly personalized. To determine if our services are suitable for your child, we encourage you to speak with one of our team members. We will work with you to tailor our approach to best support your child’s specific needs and goals.

Student Success Stories

Here’s what one of our older alternative provision students had to say about their experience:

“With Phil I do ‘woodings’ which is woodwork. I have built roofs, fences, and shelters. The thing I enjoy the most is roof work. Phil is a good laugh and a good teacher. He makes things easy to understand and repeats himself when he needs to. I have learnt to use tools like electric screwdrivers, and saws and use them safely.”
