The MacKay College is the hub for the Collegiate SEND provision where support for students is coordinated by the Assistant Principal Inclusion, Collegiate SENCO and College Inclusion Coordinators.

The MacKay College works alongside each of the 11-16 Colleges, providing additional support and intervention where needed, ensuring students are able to engage, flourish and be fully included within the mainstream curriculum offered at Riddlesdown Collegiate.  The MacKay College has a strong academic focus in ‘closing the gap’ amongst learners as well as providing nurture and emotional support to ensure the Collegiate operates as a fully inclusive school. The provision delivered through the MacKay College is short term, targeted and designed to ensure students remain fully included within their respective College.

The MacKay College is not an enhanced learning provision, rather a supportive, safe space, built on forming positive partnerships with Colleges, external agencies and families.  The MacKay Colleges’ focus is clearly embedded within our approach, “ensure all MacKay users are able to reach their full potential within their home College”.
