Changes to the SEN Department at CWA

posted 22 Mar 2017, 09:57 by Kate Holland





Charles Warren Academy, Milton Keynes is proposing to extend the current SEN provision available at the academy from 1st September 2017.


The academy currently offers Key Stage 2 SEN provision for Speech and Language. It is proposed that this provision will be extended to encompass Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils and that the designation is changed to a “Communication and Interaction” department.


It is also proposed that the available pupil spaces in the department be increased from 10 placed to 12.


The above proposal has been raised in response to a proposition from the Local Authority to reduce the SCLN department provision available at primary age, through reducing the places available at Caroline Haslett Primary School.


The academy’s proposal will allow the academy to offer more places to pupils whose SEN needs are not being met in other schools in the local area.


Pupils at Charles Warren Academy will have the opportunity to work alongside other pupils with differing needs, learning to understand differences and to work in collaboration with one another.


The proposal by Charles Warren Academy to extend its current SEN provision is supported by the Local Authority, academy Governors and SEN Director of Academies Enterprise Trust. 


Charles Warren Academy would like to invite responses to the above proposal. Responses should be made in writing by either email or post to the following addresses:




Post: Charles Warren Academy, Old Groveway, Simpson, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK6 3AZ


Please note that the deadline for the submission of consultation responses is Midday on Friday 28th April.

The Gift of Football to celebrate MK50

posted 1 Feb 2017, 08:07 by Kate Holland

MK Dons Chairman Pete Winkelman is providing The Gift of Football to Milton Keynes residents to celebrate the 50th birthday of the new city.

To mark Milton Keynes hitting the half-a-century milestone, Winkelman has given all his neighbours in an MK postcode the opportunity to claim a FREE ticket to visit Stadium MK and watch a match.

Each resident living in an MK postcode will be able to claim a FREE ticket to MK Dons’ first home league match in the new city’s 50th year, which is against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday 4th February, kick-off 3pm.

The Gift of Football will provide many residents with the opportunity to visit Stadium MK for the first time to watch live football and an inexpensive way of providing entertainment for the whole family.

All MK Dons Season Ticket holders and Club Dons members outside the MK postcode will also be able to claim a free ticket for the match as part of the Club’s MK50 celebrations. 

Pete said: “Milton Keynes is a truly special and unique place and I’m proud to say it is my home. The people of Milton Keynes have shown me so much support over the years and I wanted to give everyone a gift that would celebrate MK50.

“The Gift of Football is a great opportunity for my neighbours in the new city to come together to celebrate this milestone for Milton Keynes, as well as a chance to experience Stadium MK if they haven’t had the chance to so already.”

Tickets can be redeemed from the MK Dons Box Office at Stadium MK and from the MK Dons kiosk – located on Silbury Arcade – at centre:mk.

The free ticket will be limited to one per person with proof of address required at the time of redemption. Any one of any age is eligible for the free ticket; however, the ticket must be claimed by over-18s only.

Any under-12 must be accompanied by an adult within the stadium.

Tickets are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Club looks forward to celebrating MK50 with residents of Milton Keynes.
