We strongly believe that all our learners have gifts and talents and regard it as a privilege to find and nurture the growth of each child. All children are special and may have varying levels of specific educational needs that we aim to cater for within the daily routine. Some children experience greater difficulty in learning than most children of the same age. Other children are particularly gifted. All pupils have daily access to well-planned and differentiated work that provides opportunities to challenge and extend every child’s learning. Some will benefit from the extra help given by the support staff who are available to encourage and guide children towards achieving their full potential.
The Local Authority supports pupils within our school via its policy of special needs integration. This support includes advice to enable us to fulfil our legal requirements as well as specialist services for pupils for whom an Educational Health Care Plan has been written. The school must also follow the Code of Practice by keeping a confidential register of pupils and their needs. The parents of these children are regularly consulted and invited to attend meetings every half term to review their child’s needs and progress.
Further details regarding special educational needs are available in school from our SENDCO, Mrs Duffy.

At Ryhill Junior, Infant and Nursery School we continuously strive to ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity. Each person will be given fair and equal opportunities to develop their full potential regardless of their gender, transgender, ethnicity, culture and religious background, sexuality, disability, or special educational needs and ability. The school will actively promote equality and foster positive attitudes and commitment to education for equality.
Our Equality Objectives (2017-2020) are:
- School activities, clubs or visits are accessible to all.
- To promote increased understanding of the different faiths represented in the school and beyond.
