Paradigm Trust to open new school on Woodbridge Road for Suffolk children with communication and interaction needs
At Paradigm, we pride ourselves on ensuring all pupils have every opportunity to meet their potential which is why we are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the provision for a new school for children in Key Stage 2 – 4 with communication and interaction needs in Ipswich.
The school which, will have 60 children, is due to open in September 2022 in a new building on Woodbridge Road. This will be our fourth Ipswich School, alongside Ipswich Academy, Piper’s Vale and Murrayfield Primary Academies, all of which have achieved great academic progress and community support since coming under our care.
As a Trust, through our partnership with UK specialist Phoenix School in London, we already offer a very high level of expertise in special educational needs within our existing school network and this new school will be designed to work as an extension of this, providing more focused support for children learning with communication and interaction needs.
This is fantastic news for both the children of Ipswich and the town , as it will mean that, for the first time, children with communication and interaction needs in Ipswich will have bespoke provision in a school available to them in their local community.
The new school is being funded through the Government’s free schools programme.
