Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

Ryders Hayes school is a two-form entry primary academy for children aged 2 to 11, with a 60 place Nursery; extensive 30 hours provision for working parents and a pre-school taking ‘Time to Start’ children as well as self-funded places. We have over 500 children on roll including our pre-school children.

Our overriding aim is to foster an inclusive, dynamic; positive, safe and happy learning environment, where our children and staff can thrive, flourish and be challenged, both academically, spiritually and socially, to be the very best they can be. Our child-centred and evidence-informed approach, addresses the needs of the whole child; providing them with much needed life-skills as well as the firm and deep academic foundations they need through: excellent role models; high aspiration, expectation and encouragement to achieve. We develop children’s curiosity about learning, themselves, their peers, their community and the world; inclusive practice; a sense of community (local and global) and strong moral purpose, along with the encouragement of a life-long love of learning and desire to achieve maximum levels of independence.

Special Educational Needs and Disability Vision

Ryders Hayes is an inclusive school where all pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential and to participate fully in the life of the school. The school admits pupils with a wide range of educational, medical, sensory, social, emotional and behavioural needs and, in partnership with parents and external specialist services, staff work together to provide a learning environment and experiences with are effective in meeting the individual needs.

In addition to more generalised knowledge, some staff have developed expertise in particular areas of SEND, including Autistic Spectrum Conditions, Social, Emotional and Mental Health support as well as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia. We are a Growth Mindset and a Mentally Healthy school. Pupils and parents are actively encouraged to help make decisions about the pupil's academic, social or behavioural targets to promote their independence, confidence and self-esteem.

We continuously review access and mobility arrangements to promote the integration of pupils with physical disabilities. Ramps provide wheel chair access, we have disabled toilets and liaison with external agencies ensures that further specialist equipment and learning resources are provided as required.

Our Inclusion Leader, SENDCo (specialist support) is Louise Deeley, who is also the Deputy Head Teacher. Louise leads the provision in school for children who have complex needs which may include a diagnosis of a specific need (ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia, etc). She works closely with a highly skilled team at Ryders Hayes  and with outside agencies to ensure that children with complex needs are having their needs met appropriately within school. Where appropriate she is responsible for collating evidence to apply for an Education, Health and Care Plan and for managing the provision for those children with an EHCP. Lorna Pheasant works alongside Louise as part of our Inclusion team. Lorna is also a qualified SENDco and works closely with children and staff across school supporting their needs monitoring provision.
