We work to the guidelines set out in the SEN Code of Practice. We believe in a working partnership between parents, students, staff and other professionals to ensure successful outcomes for the students and our day-to-day practice supports this view.

It is through this support that Rayner Stephens High School is as inclusive as possible, with the needs of students with a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible, where families want this to happen.
