Here is a collection of questions that we have been asked in the past.
Bader Academy is planned to be located in Edenthorpe, on the land that is on the corner of Doncaster Road and Hungerhill Lane and situated behind Hungerhill School.
The Bader Academy will be run by Nexus Multi-Academy Trust. Nexus have notable experience in running specialist provision and currently have four special academies in Rotherham and a Primary School joining them in May. To find out more about Nexus Multi-Academy Trust, you can visit their website, http://nexusmat.org/, or download a copy of their prospectus available at the weblink below. http://nexusmat.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Nexus-Trust-Prospectus-2018-19.pdf
The school will provide 100 places for students with communication and interaction needs from the age of 5 to 19. These students have the potential to lead independent lives but their ability to achieve educationally is stifled within mainstream provision.
We currently have a number of children and young people with communication and interaction needs who are unable to access mainstream or specialist education within Doncaster. The new school will offer a bespoke curriculum designed specifically for children and young people with communication and interaction needs, enabling them to thrive and gain skills and knowledge needed to progress into positive further or higher education, training or employment. The school will nurture the development of children and young people’s communication interaction skills in a different environment to that of a my traditional school, with smaller class sizes and a more personalised curriculum.
Given the specialist nature of the school, the catchment area is borough wide.
During construction, the site is far enough from the main road that we do not anticipate the need to close roads or divert traffic as all construction related traffic will be able to use a service road, connected to the roundabout, to access the site. As these students will be on the high functioning end of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, we anticipate that they will be able to travel independently. Therefore, we do not expect a notable change to the number of vehicles currently on the roads around the proposed school.
They will be made available. Once the school is established Nexus Multi-Academy Trust will outline what facilities are available for community use and how they can be accessed.
Places at this school are allocated through Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). If your child currently has one of these and you feel they would benefit from the provision we would suggest you contact your SEND Co-ordinator within the council.
