Views sought on alternative school for troubled pupils in Lincoln
Consultation has started for the Acorn Alternative Provision Free School, which will target children at risk of exclusion in Lincoln.
The school will provide an alternative education for 11 to 16-year-olds, supporting mainstream schools and academies in raising standards in behaviour and attendance.
By exploring different ways of accessing the curriculum, the school aims to re-engage pupils in the learning process.
The school will give access to intense programmes to address the emotional and behavioural needs of pupils, also providing parental advice.

Proposals are for the school to be situated at the former Lowfields Infant School site on Calder Road.
Lead proposer for the school, Freddie White said: "Our aim is that the new school will return and reintegrate pupils to mainstream school, providing effective early intervention and reducing exclusions to zero in partnership schools.
"The new school will also offer a primary and secondary outreach capacity with a holistic approach to intervention, working with pupils, parents and partnership schools to make a positive change."
Local people are being encouraged to share their views on the proposed new school. Those interested in having their say can visit www.theacornschool.co.uk and fill in the online survey or call 0207 0650291 to request a hard copy of the questionnaire.
An open consultation event will take place at St Columba’s Church Hall, Brant Road, on March 1, between 7pm and 8:30pm. Representatives from the proposed new school will be on hand to provide more information and answer questions.
The consultation period will run until March 29.
