Special educational needs (SEN)
At Rushcroft Foundation School we pride ourselves on our inclusivity and students who have been identified as having a Special Educational Need will be supported using a variety of tried and tested methods that have successfully been developed. In some Learning Areas classes are set according to the students’ abilities and in others we have a range of abilities. We have a team of support assistants who work collaboratively with the teaching staff to ensure the needs of all our students are met in class and are available to all year groups and across all areas of the curriculum. For those with greater needs, we are able to offer small group literacy and numeracy classes across all the year groups. Our student support extends beyond the normal school day. We run a handwriting class and a reading and spelling programme during morning registrations and an after school home learning club which, while not exclusively for SEN students, they do find very helpful, with staff to support and guide them. Many individual Learning Areas also provide morning, lunch and after school clubs which are open to all ages and abilities.
Rushcroft Foundation School has extensive links with outside agencies and services that are on hand to give advice, guidance and intervention where needed. Educational Psychologist, specialist counselling, Child and Family Consultation Service, Safer Neighbourhood Officer are just some of the professionals whose aim is to support our school so we can in turn support our students.
