Rise Academy is a Pupil Referral Unit for pupils in Years 10 and 11.This means that pupils come to us via a referral process, either from their previous school or directly from the Local Authority. We have 120 students on roll for the academic year 2014 / 2015.
The individual Learning Journeys developed for each student will always take into account any additional needs the student may have. Following changes to the SEN code of practice in 2014, we are updating our full SEN policy to ensure we reflect the latest legislation.
To ensure our students are able to access any other support or provision they may be receiving, we proactively support them to travel around the city using public transport. This also helps to give them the independence and confidence they will need in preparation for working life in the future.
