At Bedford Academy we recognise and value the importance of working in partnership with parents. We listen to parents/carers and work together with them to ensure their children get the best out of their time here. All parents are able to contact key staff at the Academy by email, phone or in person and are welcomed to attend a number of events, including target setting and review days, parents’ evenings and information evenings during the school year.
During the academy day, parents/carers are encouraged to contact their child’s form tutor or Learning Village Leader if they have an urgent query. In addition to the support provided to all parents/carers, parents/carers of SEND students with more serious or complicated SEND needs will have an identified ‘key person’ at the academy, who will be their main point of contact and will also meet with them at least once every term to review their child’s progress and agree targets and strategies to ensure good progress. Parents/Carers are invited to attend the Access Coffee mornings/evenings throughout the year to give feedback and share ideas on the SEN support provided by the Academy. Refreshments will be provided.

Sarah is a qualified special needs teacher and for the last five years has been studying Animal Assisted Therapy. The Society for Companion Animal Studies explains that Animal Assisted Therapy is facilitated by health service professionals; such as therapists, teachers and nurses. AAT is goal-directed. There are a range of focus areas that can be developed with the use of AAT including, physical, social, emotional and mental health. Animal assisted therapists formally plan and monitor sessions. Goals are discussed with key professionals and/or parents (these can be linked to EHCPlans) and individual plans are designed. Detailed feedback is provided. These sessions last an hour and usually range from 6-12 sessions, depending on the client’s needs.
Sarah has taken part in rigorous training, by a leader in the field, Dr Risë VanFleet and is now a Certified Professional Practitioner in Animal Assisted Play Therapy™, one of few in the UK.
