At Risby CEVC Primary School we strive to achieve excellence through success in academic, creative, physical and social activities, in a stimulating environment which encourages personal independence and mutual respect.


At Risby we do our best to ensure that necessary provision is made for all pupils including those with SEND and that a pupil's special educational needs are made clear to any members of staff, who will teach him/her.


Teachers take the lead role in meeting special educational needs and are responsible and accountable for the progress and development of the pupils in their class, including where pupils access support from teaching assistants or specialist staff. The school does its best to ensure that all teachers are able to identify and provide for SEND pupils and we consider the teaching of children with special educational needs to be a whole school responsibility.


If you have concerns or worries about your child please make an appointment to see Mrs Sarah Ward, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO).
