Our school is an inclusive school.  We hope all our children feel welcome and happy.  We want them to look forward to their school day.  We value the contributions of all children: every child is different and every child matters.  We view differences as an opportunity for adults and children alike to learn more about ourselves.

If you child has a disability he or she will be treated no less favourably than other applications for admission.  we make reasonable adjustments to ensure that pupils with disabilities are not placed at a substantial disadvantage.

The school has a policy for supporting children with special educational needs.  Our aim is to ensure all children have access to all aspects of school life, as far as is reasonable and practicable.

We aim to prevent disabled pupils in our school being placed at a substantial disadvantage.  We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that people with a disability are not treated differently without lawful justification.  We will make reasonable adjustments for disabled pupils and we will know we have succeeded when disabled pupils are participating fully in school life.

In order for effective partnership working between home and school to take place, we anticipate that parents will want to:

  • inform the school at the earliest opportunity if their child has a disability and the exact nature of it
  • provide the information school needs to plan effectively for the child to be a full member of the school community
  • acknowledge that when deciding whether an adjustment is reasonable, one of the factors the Head Teacher must consider is the effect of the proposed change on all members of the school community
  • recognise the importance of school and home working in partnership.
