Special Education Needs

Ripplevale School believes in an individual approach. The structured school day focuses on the needs of each individual through the delivery of the whole school curriculum, including a range of sporting activities and off site educational visits. Teachers and care staff work closely together to prepare Individual Educational and Care Plans designed to help each pupil overcome his difficulties while offering him the same opportunities as his peers in mainstream school. Our caring and dedicated staff team includes qualified teachers, teaching assistants, qualified and experienced residential care workers, an educational family liaison officer, support and administrative staff. All play a significant role in the education and development of each pupil and we all work to create a warm, informal, friendly atmosphere within which the boys feel secure and confident. Small class sizes and high staff/pupil ratios ensure each pupil receives the individual attention and support they need to experience success and start to enjoy learning. We provide the opportunity for all boys to sit a choice of subjects at GCSE level and many go onto further education. Careers preparation is a priority at Ripplevale School. Careers lessons are timetabled and a careers advisor visits the school regularly. Work experience and visits to local industries are arranged. Our Connexions schemes ensures continuity and on going support for school leavers within each pupils home area.
