All school work is differentiated according to the needs of the pupils. Children with special needs are identified in school and suitable targets are set with appropriate programmes put in place.

The school’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) is Mrs Conaghan:    Tel: 01536 710175

The school tracks all children’s progress so that a child at any level has developmental targets to reach. Sometimes it may be in the child’s best interests to follow a particular programme. Parents will always be informed in this case.

Work is differentiated to ensure able children are suitably challenged.

You can find the Northamptonshire County Council Local Offer for Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities here Local Offer.


Complaints about SEND provision We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the academy as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO. If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher. If concerns are still unresolved parents / carers may wish to engage with PDET’s Complaints policy procedures.

NB - any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET’s Complaints policy.


IASS Support Service

North Northants Council and West Northants Council are ready to launch two new separate SEND Information, Advice and Support Services (IASS). North Northants SEND IASS and West Northants SEND IASS will replace the current IASS for SEND in Northamptonshire. The new services will start on 1st APRIL 2023.

North Northants SEND IAS will cover Wellingborough, Rushden, Kettering and Corby.

The two new services will continue to deliver the IASS remit of providing free, impartial information, advice and support to children and young people with SEND and their families. As part of the Children and Families Act 2014 it is a legal requirement that all local authorities ensure children and young people aged 0 to 25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) & their parents have access to an impartial Information, Advice and Support (IAS) service.

The two new services will operate at arm’s length from the local authorities and clinical commissioning groups. All staff will continue to be independently trained.

The services will give practical, factual and impartial information advice and support to enable children and young people and their parents to participate fully in decisions about education, health and social care.

Please find the contact details and new branding below for the new services. Please share this information with children, young people and their parents and carers so we can ensure a seamless transition and continuation of service delivery.

North Northants SEND IAS covering Wellingborough, Rushden, Kettering and Corby.
