We believe that each child is created in the image of God and is unique. All pupils have specific educational needs and are entitled to the best possible teaching support. Every pupil with SEN and disabilities in this inclusive school is entitled to fulfill his/her optimum potential and to build their skills, knowledge and understanding along with their sense of self-worth.
We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. Every teacher is a teacher of every pupil including those with SEN. Not all pupils with disabilities have special educational needs and not all pupils with SEN meet the definition of disability but this policy covers all of these pupils.
(* Inclusion means where appropriate SEN pupils or pupils with a disability receive the support they need in order to attend classes with other pupils).
