Special Educational Needs (SEN)


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) can affect a child or young person’s ability to learn. They can affect their:

  • behaviour or ability to socialise, eg they struggle to make friends
  • reading and writing, eg because they have dyslexia
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels, eg because they have ADHD
  • physical ability

We have a wide range of resources and strategies which allow students with difficulties to access the curriculum as fully as possible, and achieve their full potential. We strive to make the school experience happy, fulfilling, and rewarding for all students

If you think your child may have special educational needs, please contact The SENDCO, Becky Kneeshaw   –  kneeshawr@ridgewayschool.com
