Welcome to the newly converted Meadowgate Academy, part of the equally new Affinity Multi Academy Trust. The school converted on 1st April, honestly this is not an ‘April Fool’. Affinity Multi Academy Trust has been established to focus on developing and growing special schools in the area. We hope to grow and improve our skills, knowledge and practice within special education, by eventually partnering with other like-minded schools.
The conversion process to set up the Affinity MAT and change over the policies and legal and financial documentation has taken a lot of time. During this process the proposed Autism Free School has had to be put on hold. We hope, once the Academy is secure, we can revise the bid and push ahead with this much needed addition.
Meadowgate Academy continues to grow in strength. Two of our teachers are now accredited to deliver ELKLAN training and have rolled out a training programme for this and for Cued Articulation. KS4 have spent 2 terms reviewing the offer for Years 10 and 11 and have devised an exciting and balanced new curriculum for September 2017. Three teachers continue towards becoming accredited TEACCH tutors, hopefully next year we can deliver courses at Meadowgate Academy alongside the University of North Carolina.
Please be patient as we now have to up-date and re-brand our information. We will be posting details of the trust on this site during April to be fully compliant with the DfE.
Very best wishes
