Inclusive education means supporting all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. Our curriculum includes, not only the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum / National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of all pupils.
The Curriculum also included the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence.
We are an inclusive school. We support all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of our school life; not only academic, but moral, social, cultural and spiritual too. Our curriculum includes not only the formal requirements of the Curriculum/National Curriculum, but a wide range of additional opportunities which enrich the experiences of our pupils. The curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning, personal growth and the development of independence. By encouraging independence at all age and ability levels, we endeavour to develop confidence, improve self-esteem and promote enthusiasm in all our pupils.
All pupils follow the Curriculum/National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. When it is appropriate to do so, we may adopt inclusive practices in order to meet the needs of individual pupils. Some of the actions we may take to achieve this are:
- Quality First Teaching
- A range of different teaching and learning styles
- A range of whole class, group and 1:1 teaching
- Differentiated teaching, materials and resources
- Additional support in class or out of class
- Access to technology
- Ensure that teaching staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all pupils, teaching pupils in a way that is more appropriate to their needs.
- To make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum.
- Ensure that all children with SEND are fully included in all activities of the school in order to promote the highest levels of achievement.
- To promote self-worth and enthusiasm by encouraging independence at all age and ability levels.
- To give every child the entitlement to a sense of achievement.
- To work in partnership with parents/ carers, pupils and relevant external agencies in order to provide for children’s special educational needs and disabilities.
- To identify at the earliest opportunity, all children that need special consideration to support their needs (whether these are educational, social, physical or emotional)
- To regularly review the policy, procedures and practice in order to achieve best practice.
