Our most recent 2014 OFSTED report stated that "Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make better progress that their peers nationally. This is because they are given extra support in the class as well as outside the lesson to help them catch up".
- Our starting point is to guarantee a whole school approach to making provision for children with SEND effective.
- We welcome difference and diversity. We believe that learning from and about diversity strengthens our community.
- We value, respect and celebrate the achievements of all children
- We will always involve parents and children in planing and reviewing progress; we know that parents are the first educators of their child and we need their knowledge to plan effectively.
- We know that the earlier we identify special educational needs and provide support, the more successful our children will be
- We will provide expert support and resources for children with SEND to fulfil their potential
- We make sure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to support all children with SEND in school.

Our links with other schools
We are a learning community and believe that it is important to work with other schools to make sure that our knowledge, expertise and skills on SEND issues are up to date. We also share and discuss best practice with other schools. Our inclusion lead attends the Local Authority SENCO Forum which keeps all schools up to date with national developments and local projects on inclusion.
