Additional Eductional Needs

At Rickley Park Primary School we value every child whatever their additional educational need. We aim to support them on their learning journey through the school and ensure they are fully included in all our school activities and have full access to our facilities.

There are a number of different definitions for additional needs including SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities), G&T (Gifted and Talented), CLA (Currently Looked After) and EAL (English as an Additional Language). Within the school, lists are kept of all children who have additional needs and termly targets are set for their specific targets.

At Rickley Park there are a number of members of staff who work with children delivering specific programmes including teachers and teaching assistants.

  • Mrs L Avery - Deputy Headteacher (Inclusion Leader)
  • Mrs J Shaw - Gifted and Talented Lead Teacher
  • Miss S Marshall – Special Education Needs & Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo)
  • Mrs K Rand – EAL Lead Teacher 
  • Mrs E Bull - CLA Lead Teacher

We have close links with a number of external agencies which provide support and advice to schools and parents including - Educational Psychology Service, Speech and Language, SENDIS (specialist teachers) and Ethnic Minority and Achievement Support Service (EMASS)

What is a Local Offer?

The Local Offer has been introduced “as a local offer of all services available to support disabled children and children with SEND and their families. This easy to understand information will set out what is normally available in schools to help children with lower-level SEND as well as the options available to support families who need additional help to care for their child.”

The Milton Keynes Council Local Offer provides parents/carers with information about how to access services in their area, and what they can expect from those services. With regard to schools, a Local Offer Steering Group devised 15 questions (in consultation with parents/carers and other agencies) which reflect key concerns and interests to be answered schools to provide consistent and comparable information and enable parents and carers to make decisions about how to best support their child’s needs.
