Nene Park Academy

Nene Park Academy


Nene Park Academy opened on 1st September 2011, sponsored by Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust, making permanent the partnership with Swavesey Village College, an outstanding school near Cambridge with whom the predecessor school had been successfully working for 12 months. The partnership brings expertise, capacity, and proven systems and practices, underpinned by the highest expectations for achievement.

Nene Park Academy combines the very best educational practices with the benefits of the Academy’s unique geographical location and partnerships.

Our educational philosophy is a simple and uncompromising: ‘to know and support every student to enjoy and achieve’. Ofsted described this philosophy in our partner school as ‘an absolute belief that every child matters' and it underpins the ethos and practices within the academy

At Nene Park we make every effort to ensure that reasonable adjustment is made for our SEND students so that they can access both curricular and extracurricular provision alongside their mainstream peers.  SEND students within mainstream education are supported mainly through effective differentiation within lessons.  Pastoral care is provided by house teams with the aim of maximising the opportunity for SEND students to be integrated as much as possible. Additional support is allocated according to need, with priority being given to those with EHCPs.

Students are placed in the ERP (Enhanced Resource Provision) through the local authority.   Students within the ERP have differentiated timetables which include as many mainstream lessons as possible.  They always have teaching assistant support when they are in mainstream lessons and will be withdrawn if at any point these lessons become over stimulating. In addition to mainstream lessons ERP students have additional lessons on their timetable to assist them in overcoming the challenges they may face due to their autism
