All children and young people need support to help them learn.
A student does not need a diagnosis to receive additional support for learning, but the school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator and colleagues may be able to give advice regarding specialist teachers or health professionals.
Additional support for learning can take many forms. It can include things like: -
Please talk to the RBIS Special Needs Coordinator (SENCO) or Head of Section if you think your child needs:
RBIS will identify which children and young people have additional support needs.
We aim to provide these students with ‘adequate and efficient’ additional support to help them fully benefit from their education.
Student’s may benefit from either an IEP or a BSP.
An Individual Education Plan (IEP) which is a written statement that describes the adjustments, goals and strategies to meet a student's individual educational needs so they can reach their full potential.
A Behavioural Support Plan (BSP) is a school-based document for students who require additional assistance because they display difficult, challenging or disruptive behaviours, as well as students who can benefit from additional wellbeing support.
This additional support is kept under review to make sure that it is meeting a student’s needs.
RBIS works closely with parents and careers with regard to decisions and discussions about additional support. All children and young people have the opportunity to share their views with the school about decisions that significantly affect them.
