Live and Learn with Jesus.
We follow Jesus through fairness, kindness, love, friendship and happiness.
The term inclusion describes the removal of barriers. To ‘include’ is to embrace all people regardless of race, creed, gender or disability including Dyslexia, and to include each and everybody in society’s economic and cultural activities.
In education inclusion has become an accepted term to describe a shift in educational provision away from segregating pupils in special schools on the grounds of disability and instead placing increasing numbers of such children in mainstream schools.
Inclusion links up with the agenda for school improvement and the raising of educational standards. It asks schools to examine and improve its approaches to all pupils.
Inclusion concerns all pupils, not just those with special educational needs including Dyslexia. It involves issues relating to whole school ethos, curriculum planning, admission arrangements and communication with parents.
IEP’s must be drawn up and maintained where appropriate for children with special needs including Dyslexia and reviewed by the class teacher, inclusion manager and parents on a regular basis.
Computing/ICT should be used whenever possible to support children with Learning Difficulties.
‘Whole School’ teaching and learning procedures are agreed and monitored on a regular basis. Planning should show differentiation so as to cater for differing abilities, special needs including Dyslexia, EAL and gifted and talented children. Classroom organisation should allow different learning styles and groupings so as to enable all pupils to access a range of educational activities.
Good behaviour in school should be promoted and rewarded. The school behaviour policy should be understood by all staff and pupils and made available for visiting staff and parents.
Parents should be kept well informed of school procedures and events. They are partners in the education of their children.
The school development plan/action plan should show how best the school can meet the needs of staff and the children to raise any issues for further development/improvement.
In accordance with our school Mission Statement ‘ Live and learn with Jesus,‘ all staff and parents should work together to strive to create a happy, pleasant, caring environment within which all children can develop to their fullest their academic ability, physical skills, aesthetic qualities and social awareness.
