Special Educational Needs | Rainhill High School

Special Educational Needs

The governors and staff of Rainhill High are committed to the inclusion of all students with special educational needs and disabilities in the full life of the school, with equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our Vision

We always aim to raise the aspirations and expectations for all students including students identified with Special Educational Needs.

SEN/D is a core principle of Rainhill, as everyone strives to break down barriers. This underpins our teaching and learning, regardless of particular needs or abilities. Every child, whatever their difficulties, is supported in finding strategies to deal/overcome them.

Our Values

• We welcome difference and diversity.

• We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure they are well informed and centrally involved in the life of the school.

• We will always involve parents and carers and their children in planning and reviewing progress; we know that parents are the first educators of their child; we need their knowledge to plan effectively.

• We know that the earlier we identify special educational needs and provide support, the more successful our students will be.

• We will provide expert support and resources for students with SEN/D to fulfil their potential.

• Our starting point is a whole-school approach to making provisions for students with SEN/D: we make sure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to support all students with SEN/D in our school.

The Rainhill High School SEND Information Report

The Rainhill High School SEND information report sets out what we provide for young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEN/D) throughout their time with us. It explains how we support them on to the next stage of their lives and informs parents and carers about:

• How we welcome young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities into our school;

• How we remove barriers to achievement and support them in all aspects of school life;

• How we work in partnership with parents, carers and young people.
