Special Educational Needs and Disability
SRRCC is an inclusive school and the Learning Support Team works in collaboration all other members of the school to offer support to students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
As a school we are committed to the belief that every child is an individual who brings something special to the school community. All students, regardless of ability, background or ethnicity, have the right to participate in and enjoy all aspects of school life, and have the opportunity to meet their full potential.
The Learning Support Team is led by our Assistant Principal, Mr McPaul with the assistance of Mrs Kirsten Roy Learning Support Manager. We have a team of Teaching Assistants with training and experience of supporting students with a variety of needs such as Autism, Speech, Language and Communication Difficulties, Visual and Hearing Impairments, Down Syndrome and literacy difficulties.
Admissions to SRRCC, including for students with education, health and care plans, disabilities and Looked after Children, are handled by the Local Education Authority. A copy of our Admissions Policy can be found on the school website. The Information Report below explains our approach to supporting students with SEND and how students access any additional help that they need.
