Kennel Lane School develops and maintains excellent relationships with its professional and community partners. In addition to the dedicated staff team that work with learners in school, Kennel Lane thrives on the input from other professionals, agencies and charities.

The Governors

The Governors provide strategic leadership to the school. They have a strong focus on three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of our school;
  2. Holding our headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its learners, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial and other resources of the school, making sure that money is well spent and that the school environment is developed and maintained.

Professional Partners

Many agencies work with students at Kennel Lane School to provide additional services and programmes. Some programmes, such as Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy (SaLT) and Physiotherapy are ongoing and professionals from these teams work with learners on a regular basis. Kennel Lane School also employs a specialist Sensory Impairment teacher who works with individual learners.

Other agencies contribute to the wellbeing of learners in a different way and teaching staff at Kennel Lane, often consult with them to help improve the wellbeing of our young people. Kennel Lane School has strong links with the NHS, Social Care team and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Young people at Kennel Lane School meet certain professionals at key points in their school life. An advisor from Adviza (formerly Connexions) will meet Secondary learners to help with the transition into adulthood from Year 9 onwards. The Educational Psychologist will assess learners’ development several times over their time at Kennel Lane.

Community Partners

As a central part of the community, Kennel Lane School greatly appreciates the help it receives from community partners such as Bracknell Forest Borough Council, the Kerith Centre and the Family Support Centre. We also have strong links with local schools and colleges that some of our learners attend on placement or as part of a wider inclusion programme.
