The Vulnerable Pupils Panel (VPP) previously known as the Central Provisions Panel (CPP) was developed to consider referrals to Together for Children's locally commissioned alternative educational provisions.
Educational provisions cater for pupils who are experiencing difficulties managing mainstream school and all referrals to our service are taken through a transparent, fair and impartial referral process.
It is the responsibility of the school (or medical consultant in the case of hospital tuition), to submit a VPP Referral. The VPP meets fortnightly and referrals must be submitted one week prior to the panel meeting. Our guidance below includes additional information and you can also download a VPP referral form.
