We have a page dedicated to Safeguarding which you can find here.
Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN (Special Educational Need) that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:
- Children in public care
- Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
- Pupils who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.
- Other pupils.
If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (3) priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please contact Northamptonshire County Council Admission Team:
Northamptonshire's coordinated admission schemes
Local authorities must publish a scheme to coordinate admission arrangements for schools within their area.
Northamptonshire's schemes for 2018 are below. The significant change to the scheme is the offers being communicated to parents online only (where an online application has been made) rather than in a letter.
Trust Annual Report and Accounts
Sometimes things happen which make children or parents unhappy. It is important that parents/carers feel they are able to raise concerns. In most cases, concerns and complaints can be resolved by talking to staff at our school.
If you have a concern or complaint about your child, including any SEND child, please speak to the staff in the following order:
- Class Teacher
- Year Group Leader
- Key Stage Leader / Deputy Head Teachers (Mrs Sharpe or Mrs Nimmo)

Behaviour and Discipline
The school has a policy on behaviour management and anti-bullying which are available on the website. We expect children at Redwell to be well behaved, self-disciplined and confident. One of the skills we will be actively teaching is self-regulation and is incorporated into our behaviour policy. We expect parents to work with the school in partnership to support these policies. When your child starts at our school, you will be asked to sign a contract, a Home School Agreement. It is our aim to build upon the discipline already established at home and at pre-school and we enter into this contract with you as part of our belief in partnership between home and school.
We have a clear system of rewards and sanctions to reward good behaviour and prevent unacceptable behaviour. Staff set a good example to the children in the way we value each other and the way we behave with them and you. Every child has a right to feel safe, the right to respect and the right to learn. All children have the responsibility to ensure that this happens. Staff use positive behaviour management strategies and co-regulation techniques to support the children to develop self-regulation. They use verbal praise, sharing success, public celebration, stickers, certificates, text alerts, merits, values pebbles and house points at various times during the school year. Records are kept of challenging behaviour and parents are informed and involved at an early stage if we have to use sanctions.
All incidents of racial harassment or bullying are recorded onto the school system. These incidents are taken very seriously and are dealt with quickly. Parents are involved in discussions about strategies and solutions. Internal exclusions are used in the event of any per on peer abuse as stated in the behaviour and anti-bullying policies. We adhere to the Northamptonshire County Council policy on exclusion.
We expect adults to demonstrate respect and model positive behaviour for the children in our school. Inappropriate behaviour towards any member of staff or adult in our school will not be tolerated. If you witness any such behaviour please report it to the school office, reports will be treated sensitively.
Principles - It is our policy that all children must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. We very much appreciate parents' support in ensuring that the children have the correct uniform and attend school smartly dressed. We regard this as a very important factor in the success of the school.
The Role of Governors - Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical whilst remaining economical for parents. Most items can be easily obtained from any popular store. However, sweatshirts and cardigans need to be ordered from our uniform stockist.
Aims - Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform is essential to the ethos of our school community as it establishes a clear sense of identity, fosters a sense of inclusive belonging, and engenders both positive behaviour and self-discipline, which in turn supports teaching and learning.
