Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

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

  • behaviour or ability to socialise
  • reading and writing
  • ability to understand things
  • concentration levels
  • 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 SENCO, Becky Kneeshaw   –  kneeshawr@ridgewayschool.com
