The Catch22 Multi Academies Trust is the vehicle for our sponsorship of an expanding number of academies focusing on learners who can benefit from small, supportive alternative education provision.
Academy sponsorship is about using partnerships to provide specific expertise and skills to enhance standards. Catch22, with our existing wide experience of alternative education provision, brings a focus on academic and behavioural improvement leading to re-integration back to mainstream provision up to Key Stage 3, infrastructure support, improvement to pastoral provision and greater focus on preparing young people for the world of work.
We look to increase access to one to one and mentoring opportunities through a mixture of off-site and extra curricular events in order to improve the self-esteem and self-confidence of learners. We also implement speech and language development programmes.
We offer a full national curriculum as well as a nurturing environment for primary and vocational subjects for older students. We have high aspirations for all learners, with an expectation that all secondary learners will work toward achieving at least five GCSEs.
The Fen Rivers Academy is a special school that, when completed, will offer full time education and therapeutic support to 96 children aged 5 to 16 years old. Pupils will be referred to the school by the local authority as part of their duties to arrange SEN provision.
Phase one of the Academy is now open and offers primary places only. The school occupies premises on Kilhams Way that have been converted specifically to meet the needs of the young people it will serve.
Phase two will occupy the adjacent St Edmunds Academy premises once that school has relocated to its proposed new site in Lynnsport. It is planned that phase two will open in the refurbished premises in Autumn 2020 and offer places for secondary pupils at that point.
