Our SEND ethos is in line with the SEND Code of Practice which states:

“All children and young people are entitled to an appropriate education, one that is appropriate to their needs, promotes high standards and the fulfilment of potential. This should enable them to:

Anchor 1
Anchor 2
  • achieve their best

  • become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and

  • make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training

We rise to great heights  by a winding staircase of  small steps.

At Rugby Free Primary School, our intention is to ensure that all children receive a high-quality education with a broad and balanced curriculum, which will help them to achieve success and reach their individual potential. We aim to equip pupils with skills necessary for success in life beyond their primary education, regardless of need or disability. We believe that this will help them to become curious and resilient learners, kind and respectful citizens with the skills to collaborate and continue to endeavour. Throughout our SEND provision, the children are at the centre of our work. We intend to build independence in our children with additional needs, through providing an accessible and engaging learning environment. We believe that partnership with parents and carers is vital, as well as working alongside external agencies and professionals to continuously improve our provision for children with additional needs.

  • Application Process
    You will receive the official transfer documents from the local authority during the Autumn Term of your child final year in primary school inviting you to select your preferred secondary school. The local authority then informs secondary schools of their prospective students in the Spring Term. RFSS’s Transition and Primary Liaison Leader will then keep in close contact with our feeder primary schools and during the Summer Term will visit all primary schools to meet with our new intake of students. We will talk to your child’s teachers about the progress made so far and any strategies used and needs to be addressed.
  • Year 7 Induction
    During the Summer Term our new intake spend at least one day with us for “Induction Day”, during which they will get to know key staff and students in their new school and familiarise themselves with our buildings and rules. On the same evening, we invite all prospective students back into school with their parents to ensure parents have opportunity to meet key staff and have the chance to ask questions. ​ In-year admissions are currently administered by Warwickshire County Council.
