Newsletter - May 2020

Welcome to May’s Bader Academy Briefing!

Welcome to the fifth edition of the Bader Academy newsletter. I hope that you got the opportunity to enjoy the bank holiday and participate in some VE celebrations!

Amazingly Wilmott Dixon are our own heroes at the moment as they continue to make great progress on site. Just before the bank holiday they were only one week behind schedule which is amazing considering the restrictions of social distancing and reduced supplies from manufacturers. Take a look at the photos below and see how the school is taking shape, or why not visit the link below for a virtual tour of the school.

For those of you who want to get fully immersed why not you can grab a VR headset for a true 3D experience. This tool will become even more exciting as the school develops and the building and classrooms really start to take shape.

Recruitment Update

The interviews for teachers were all completed last month. 23 interviews took place via Skype which was no easy task for the recruitment panel. All posts were successfully recruited to with some excellent staff members being selected and ready to join the Bader Academy community.


The consultation period for the school ended this month. A wide variety of tools and techniques have been used over the past few months to gather feedback from a wide range of stakeholders. The results have been very positive with 100% of respondents strongly agreeing or agreeing that; ‘the school will provide extra choice and provision for families and has a vision, ethos and varied curriculum that will enrich the lives of the pupils attending.’ Parents and carers have got involved too and have put forward comments such as; ‘we’re absolutely thrilled to finally see a school dedicated to high functioning ASD’, ’it is a much needed setting and we are very excited that our child has the opportunity to be a part of it from the beginning,’ ‘this is such a unique school,’ and ‘an excellent addition to the education provision across the Doncaster area.’
