Coventry Special School Makes Strategic Academisation Move

A well-known special educational needs school in Coventry has announced its transition to academy status. Baginton Fields School, now known as Baginton Fields Academy,  has joined Thrive Education Partnership, a multi-academy trust of special needs schools across the West Midlands and Warwickshire.

Baginton Fields serves a diverse group of secondary-aged students with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Severe and Moderate Learning Difficulties (SLD/MLD), and those on the Autistic Spectrum (ASD). Baginton Fields was recognised for its comprehensive approach in a recent 'Good' rating from Ofsted.

Commenting on the new partnership, Alison Francis, Headteacher at Baginton Fields, said: "Joining Thrive Education Partnership is a milestone for us. It enables us to broaden our impact and enhance educational opportunities for our pupils. We're excited about the opportunities this collaboration will bring to our school community."

Thrive Education Partnership, known for its dedication to special education across its network of academies, welcomes Baginton Fields as a valuable addition. The partnership aims to leverage shared knowledge and resources to further enrich the educational experience for students with special needs.

Richard Chapman, CEO of Thrive Education Partnership, said: "The inclusion of Baginton Fields Academy into our Trust is a perfect match. Its dedicated staff and commitment to special education not only aligns with our vision and values, but also opens up new avenues for professional development and inter-school cooperation."

This partnership represents a shared commitment to improving the educational landscape for students with special educational needs, ensuring they have access to the highest quality education and support.
