New Resource Provision at Bramley Park

10 Jun 2020   |   Carrie Green   |   Bramley Park Academy

Bramley Park Academy is to be the host of a Resource Provision for ASC pupils from September 2020 in conjunction with Leeds City Council. This is an exceptionally proud moment for the school, Wellspring and the whole community, due to the rapid improvement journey of the school to date.

We are overjoyed to be able to provide this essential care to young people in the west of Leeds and our very own community of Bramley. What a journey it has been, to finally get to the stage of planning. Our relentless approach to ensuring we can offer this provision has been whole-heartedly supported by Josh Greaves, Deputy CEO and Scott Jacques, Chair of Governors. We certainly could have not done it without them!

Our school is an inspirational hub of first class teaching, nurture, care, kindness and inclusivity. This will now be widened to our ‘Launch Pad’ pupils to ensure they are given the best possible opportunities on a daily basis, whilst supporting their individual needs.

We are working in close consultation with Leeds City Council and our fabulous Estates Team, led by Amie Goodyear and Steve Boldy. We will be able to offer a bespoke approach for our newest pupils, accessing first class immersive space and provision within our classrooms.

We are delighted to have appointed a Centre Leader. Sally-Ann Akitt will lead and develop the provision at Bramley and throughout the community. She brings a wealth of experience and provenance to the role, having worked in provisions across North Yorkshire. We are delighted to be welcoming her to the team.

Sally-Ann said: ‘I am thrilled to be joining your forward thinking and caring school from September 2020 and cannot wait to meet the school staff, the children and their families.

As Centre Leader I will be joining Bramley Park Academy at a particularly exciting time. The setting up and establishing of a Specialist Resource Provision within your school will help ensure that children living in the west of Leeds are able to access specialist support closer to their own homes and community. The provision will be at the heart of BPA which itself lies at the heart of the local community.

My core values reflect those of BPA. I believe that all children should have access to first class school provision. Every child should learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment where the potential for that child can be developed and realised as fully as possible, cultivating a positive and happy self-image that encourages them to dream big, work hard and be kind.’

In addition, our workforce will be greatly enhanced with the appointment of five additional support staff. The provision is destined to offer so much more to our wider community at Bramley, not only the physical recourse but the understanding and tolerance of diverse needs within our society and community. The introduction of this provision is a simple testimony to the hard work, dedication and aspirational approach of the team at Bramley in their quest for ensuring the best possible provision for everyone. Over the coming months we will continue to be in constant contact with you to keep you fully informed of next steps and when we will be welcoming our newest pupils… watch this space… exciting times lay ahead.
