What is Inclusion?
Inclusion is fundamentally an issue of Equality of Opportunity for all. The aim is to ensure that all children and young people fulfil their potential as citizens within their local community. It is the process of enabling all children and young people to be educated in an inclusive learning community. To achieve this, we need to develop flexible systems of learning, teaching and resourcing that remove barriers to full participation. Through valuing diversity and meeting a wide range of needs, the achievements of all children and young people will be enhanced.
Our school aims to be a safe and inclusive school. This means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for our children. We make this a reality through the attention we pay to the different groups of children within our school:
- Girls and boys;
- Transgender pupils;
- Minority ethnic and faith groups;
- Children who need support to learn English as an additional language;
- Children with special educational needs;
- Gifted and talented children;
- Child looked after (CLA);
- Any children who are at risk of disaffection or exclusion;
- Children with disabilities or medical needs.
