The RIS community is highly committed to inclusion and welcomes students with a variety of needs, including those with special educational needs, physical differences, emotional challenges, English language learners and students who are gifted and talented.

Personalized learning that puts the child at the centre of their educational journey, and ensures that they are supported in every aspect, be it academically, socially, or emotionally is something we take immense pride in. At RIS we foster a culture of respect with an appreciation for the contributions each member of our learning community has to offer. We aim to create opportunities for all students to experience success on their individual journeys. All our teachers are SEN trained and highly qualified to ensure each child is offered a high-quality education that suits their needs and strengths. Our core values of Achievement, Collaboration, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility can be seen in action in every learning space across the school.

Student well-being is a priority at RIS and there is a whole-school approach taken to promoting positive choices, kindness and understanding. We offer a nurturing and supportive environment where individual strengths are celebrated and students are motivated to excel.

RIS firmly believes that the need for additional support is something all students may experience at some stage of their school life.  We offer one-to-one and small group interventions as well as in-class support to help our learners bridge any gaps and thrive. We work in partnership with families, specialists, and external agencies to ensure all students get what they need, when they need it, to become resilient and enthusiastic, life-long learners.
