Special education needs

The curriculum reflects the education and welfare provision for pupils with statements and pupils for whom English is an additional language. The curriculum also provides for pupils with learning difficulties and/or pupil disabilities.  There is also provision for gifted and talented pupils. The planning of a differentiated curriculum and adhering to ‘Every Child Matters’ guidance is in place. We have excellent support for students with dyslexia/dyscalculia and are experienced at dealing with students who have a variety of needs. At Rastrick, all students are ‘special’. 


I like school because I have lots of friends and because of our funny and friendly teacher. I enjoy working with my support worker, she helps me in my lessons.
