Overview: New SEN Provision at Stanground Academy

Stanground Academy is excited to announce a partnership with the Peterborough SEND and Inclusion Service to establish an Autism Hub for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 pupils. This initiative aims to support up to 8 students with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, providing the necessary assistance to access the mainstream curriculum effectively.

Key Details
  • Purpose: To create an inclusive educational environment tailored for students with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, enhancing their social and independent skills alongside academic learning.
  • Facility Upgrades: Conversion of under-utilised spaces within the academy into a specialised classroom, breakout rooms, and an office, funded by the Local Authority.
  • Impact: The new provision will not affect current or future mainstream students but will enrich the academy’s overall educational quality by expanding staff expertise and resources.
  • Leadership and Staffing: The hub will be managed by existing school leaders with the addition of new specialised staff, aiming for an opening by Easter 2025.

Stakeholders are invited to share their feedback and ask questions about this proposal. The consultation period runs until midnight on Tuesday 04 June 2024. Comments can be sent to

This initiative is part of our ongoing commitment to providing exceptional education for all students, ensuring every learner receives the support they need to succeed.
