Special Educational Needs & Disabilities

Richard Challoner School firmly believes that each pupil should be given equality of opportunity to achieve their full potential – spiritually, academically and socially – by recognising the uniqueness of each individual and providing a rich and varied learning experience for all. Each pupil, regardless of their ability, is entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant to their educational needs. Richard Challoner School  is committed to providing, for all pupils, the best possible environment for learning and offering a curriculum that gives all pupils a sense of achievement and thereby helps them to develop confidence and self-esteem.

Richard Challoner continues to have constant regard for the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (CoP) when carrying out our duties towards all pupils with SEND and ensure that parents are notified when SEND provision is being provided for their child.

Whether you are a prospective parent or an existing parent, please do take the time to discover how pupils are supported at Richard Challoner School.

Whilst we are now up and running with physical SEND tours each half term, 2 years ago this wasn't the case. As a result of this we created a 'SEND Parent Information' video for any parent interested in Richard Challoner that wasn't able to attend in person. We also produced a 'New starter video' which can be found on our 'Joining Richard Challoner with SEND page'.
