Further progress for new town school

Plans for Daventry’s new special school can be seen by the public as part of meetings to be held next month.

It comes after it was revealed that the Daventry Special Academy will be based on land next to the town’s University Technical College.

A date for the meeting has yet to be announced but it will be a chance for parents and carers to meet members of the trust and the executive headteacher. Shez Webb, executive headteacher said: “We are working very closely with the Education Funding Agency and Daventry District Council since reaching Heads of Terms for the site.

“The trust and I look forward to speaking with parents and updating everyone about the progress of the school and sharing the plans for the site.

“These forthcoming events will also provide an opportunity to share our vision, model and ambitious curriculum for providing an outstanding education for their children.” The proposed school will open in September 2016 initially with pupils in Reception, Year Three, Year Seven, Year Nine and Year 12.

The school will then grow each year until full in 2019 with a total of 175 children.

Details about the events as well as further information about Daventry Special Academy can be found on the school’s website at www.daventryspecialacademy.co.uk or parents/carers can request further information by sending an email to info@daventryspecialacademy.co.uk.
