Samuel Rhodes School is one of the special schools in Islington, each of which provide support for children with particular special educational needs (SEN). The Government says that children with special educational needs and disabilities must be included in mainstream schools wherever possible.
All Islington schools and education settings are provided with additional resources to help children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities. This recognises that children learn in different ways and have different kinds and levels of SEN that may need help for only a short time, or for many years. There is a strong agreement at all levels in Islington that children's needs should be met wherever possible in mainstream schools, and we understand that for nearly all Islington children, this is where they will receive their education. But we also understand that for a small number of children it may be that a mainstream school is not appropriate, or at least not for the whole of their school career. So to meet the broad range of children's needs and parental preferences we also have a range of specialists provision in Islington. All of our special schools have a very important role in providing support and training to mainstream schools in Islington. Samuel Rhodes School leads one of the service areas in the Borough, for children with difficulties in learning and cognition. It has an outreach team which advises mainstream schools and supports the pupils with learning difficulties. The Primary Department is now located on the Montem Community Campus, Hornsey Road. The latest report about this school is available on Ofsted's website.
Samuel Rhodes School is not currently recognised as a 'Healthy School'.
