The over arching policy objective of
the Entitlement Framework is to
guarantee all post primary pupils
aged 14 and above greater choice
and flexibility by providing them
with access to a wide range of
learning opportunities. It aims to
provide pupils with a broad and
balanced curriculum to enable
them to reach their full potential no
matter which school they attend or
where they live.
It will guarantee all pupils access to a
minimum number of courses at
Key Stage 4 and post-16, of which
at least one third must be general
and one third applied.
What is our obligation to the EF in
Fleming Fulton?
The situation for special schools has not been finalised.
Department of Education has said that:
•"while we want to see the Special Sector engaged in the EF and the
pupils therein to have access to opportunities and choice in the same
way as pupils in mainstream schools, it is vital that this is done in a way
relevant to the needs of these pupils.
•Our message has been 'work with other schools and providers to put in
place provision that is appropriate for your pupils'.
•We are determined that EF policy must not work against this principle,
which is why we have not finalised policy until it has been thoroughly
discussed and tested within the sector“ (CCEA “Recognising the
achievements of learners with special educational needs- pilot scheme”)
•DE officials have said "only you can decide what is appropriate for
your pupils".
3 Clear Pathways Identified:
•Learning Programme (e.g. OCR Life &
Living Skills)
•Entry Level GCSE (or Equivalent)
•GCSE
Learning Programmes
 Learning programmes are defined as flexible
packages or groupings of qualifications taken
mainly from the QCF. Qualifications within these
programmes will range from Entry Level to Level
1 and will have a clear destination or route of
progression for the learner. Qualifications within
the programme can differ in size and a
programme can have a mixture of different levels
– Entry Level 1, 2, 3 and Level 1.
