Inclusion Team

The Inclusion Team support education and welfare within the Knottingley Pyramid of Academies.

The team is led by Paula Harris, who is the Pyramid Inclusion Leader and SEN Lead in the Academies. 

There are two main aspects of the team's work: educational progress and safeguarding, and welfare.

Paula Harris is supported by Hillary Lockett in the area of Special Educational Needs.

If you have a concern regarding your child’s progress you should, in the first instance, arrange a meeting with the class teacher to discuss this.

At Simpson's Lane, Lesley Silburn now leads on all aspects of safeguarding, attendance and welfare concerns, working directly with the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Deep Support Lead as well as the local authority Educational Welfare Officer (EWO), Social Services and other external agencies.

If you have any concerns regarding safeguarding or welfare, you should contact the Designated Safeguarding Leads, Miss Mayers or Mrs Fairfield, at the academy first, and they will then liaise with the Inclusion Team.

To contact any member of the team please ask at the Academy Main Office reception, or contact the Main Office on 01977 722515.
