Pupils with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

Risedale welcomes all pupils and endeavours to ensure that appropriate provision is made to cater for their needs. All pupils with SEND play a full part in the daily life of the school and are encouraged to join in all activities. If additional provision is necessary our parents/carers are always informed and we would ask parents to inform us of any special considerations needed for their child.

Transition: Moving from Year 6 to Year 7

Our Transition Manager (Mr Pearson) and KS3 Manager (Mrs Wright) work closely with our local primary schools throughout the year to ensure an easy and smooth transfer to the school. Open Evenings and Taster Days are held annually for the incoming Year 6 pupils.

At Risedale, The Hub provides a nuturing environment where pupils are supported with transition so they feel happy, safe and confident to move onto the next steps in school and life.
