Rutlish School Inclusion 

The Inclusion Department is committed to creating provisions to support a range of students, with diverse needs, in gaining full and equal access to the curriculum. It is an area that emphasises the Rutlish ethos of achievement for all.

Mentoring Support
Mentoring support is offered to all students at Rutlish School. Additionally, Year 6 students joining Rutlish School in Year 7 can start mentoring support as early as the summer term prior to joining us with the focus being transition support.  The Inclusion Manager works with the primary school to devise a transition programme for a smooth and successful transfer from primary to secondary school. 

The aim of the Rutlish School mentoring programme is to enable all students to fully access the curriculum by removing barriers to learning, that can occur at any time.  Mentoring support includes:

  • Transition
  • Emotional
  • Self Esteem
  • Behavioural
  • Academic

Mentoring is delivered in a number of ways which include:

  • Workshops
  • 1:1 mentoring support
  • In class support
  • Group work support
