SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS
Our vision – Inspired to learn, supported to succeed
Special Educational Needs: The learning support department at Ringwood School is known as The Hive and it has a hard earned reputation for excellence. Staff have experience of a diverse range of additional needs and effective interventions to support learning. Classroom support is top quality and both teachers and teaching assistants have ongoing professional training designed to meet the needs of all learners.
The way to success is through team work between families, staff and outside agencies. We work closely with a range of advisors and professionals who provide us with specialist advice to help young people maximise their development in school academically, socially and emotionally. As well as being future-focused, we value the work of our primary colleagues and the transition between different settings is thorough, ensuring that we are aware of support received during the young person’s formative years. This helps us to ensure both continuity of support and a bespoke approach where things need to be substantially different.
We aim to support all students in meeting their potential- whatever that may be. Students have gone onto sixth form here as well as other colleges to do a range of courses and a significant number have moved on to university or have established thriving careers. We regularly receive visits from ex-students who have valued their experiences at Ringwood and are keen to share their success stories with us. As a department we are friendly and approachable and we value early communication from families when there are queries and questions. We can be contacted using the schools contact number 01425 475000. If you require more detailed information please refer to the Hampshire Local Offer on the Ringwood School website.
