Samuel Rhodes School - Secondary Department
Samuel Rhodes School is one of the special schools in Islington, each of which provide support for children with particular special educational needs (SEN). 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 located on the Montem Community Campus, Hornsey Road and the Secondary Department is on the same site as Highbury Grove School. All schools are inspected regularly by Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills). The latest report about this school is available on Ofsted's website.
Samuel Rhodes School is not currently recognised as a 'Healthy School'.

It is usually necessary to carry out a detailed investigation to find out exactly what a child's special educational needs are and what extra help they may need before a special school place is considered. This process is called a Education, Health and Care assessment.
It is only necessary if the child's school or education setting cannot provide all the help that a child needs, or if a child is identified as having severe disabilities at a very early age.
A parent, school or education setting can ask the local authority to carry out a statutory assessment. The local authority will consider information about the child's progress at school, advice from other professionals who support them and the parents views.
