Northamptonshire Sport believes everyone, no matter what their ability, should have access to sport, recreation and physical activity.

The Northamptonshire Federation of Disability Sport (NFDS) aims to increase the number of disabled people involved in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity within Northamptonshire. In order to achieve this, NFDS has five key goals:

  1. To act as a collective voice for disability sport both in Northamptonshire and throughout the East Midlands
  2. To develop partnerships between local voluntary, statutory and private agencies to break down barriers faced by disabled people in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  3. To make sure disabled people have access to sporting opportunities at a level of their choosing and ability, in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  4. To empower disabled people to make a positive contribution in all aspects of sport, recreation and physical activity
  5. To ensure that each disabled person is treated fairly, without discrimination, regardless of his or her gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or economic background

We provide a range of interventions in school for children who shown signs of dyslexia. Mrs Freeman, our SENCO, has particular expertise in this area. Whilst we cannot make a diagnosis of dyslexia, we are able to arrange screenings  as well as giving pointers of where interventions need to take place. 

If you are concerned that your child may be dyslexic, please contact our SENCO.

Complaints about SEND provision

We urge parents / carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to us as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCO.  If parents / carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher.  If concerns are still unresolved parents / carers may wish to engage with PDET’s Complaints policy procedures.

NB - any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET’s Complaints policy.

If parents / carers require further advice / support, they should use the local Information, Advice and Support Service for Special Educational Needs and Disability SENDIASS: Information Advice Support Service for SEND in Northamptonshire (telephone 01604 364772) .
