Inclusion

Our curriculum and teaching ensures that children of all abilities, faiths and backgrounds are fully included, encouraged to develop and given access to all activities. Our recognition of the uniqueness of each child arises directly from our Christian values; everyone is created in God’s image.

Supporting all abilities

We fully support children with special educational needs, including the most able. We encourage and challenge all children of all abilities and needs. The Headteacher will oversee inclusion. It is our priority to ensure recognition of all children’s particular learning strengths/needs at particular times as well as those with specific longer-term learning requirements. Further details of our policies on special educational needs (SEND) can be found on our website.

Assessment

We firmly believe that children need to be happy in order to learn, and then their strengths and needs can be identified. This is the key to them achieving their full potential. Early assessment will help us to create individual learning targets. In keeping with the National Curriculum, we will assess children termly, and use formal end of year tests to monitor and respond to their progress.

By tracking learning performance regularly, and consulting with the Inclusion Coordinator, staff will respond quickly to children’s needs, as they arise.

We will encourage children and parents to take ownership of their progress, adopting a collaborative approach and encouraging parents and carers to engage with the process of reviewing learning targets.
