The aim of inclusion is to embrace all people irrespective of race, religion, gender identity, special educational need or other need. It is about giving equal access and opportunities and getting rid of discrimination and intolerance (removal of barriers).
Our motto ‘We Dream, We Learn, We Grow’ may seem to have only three parts, but the hidden fourth element is the ‘We’, our focus on community and inclusion. The key components of this are:
- Our special educational needs (SEN) provision, including a specialist resource provision for ASD.
- Our anti-bullying policies and processes that address bullying (physical, verbal, psychological or cyber) in any form (racist, homophobic, biphobic, transphobic, sexist, religious or cultural). We are a Stonewall Champions School.
- Our Pupil Premium provision, supporting social mobility and inclusion.
- Our mental health provision, including thorough one-to-one counselling sessions from Place2Be. Students can access Place2Talk at lunch and refer themselves for counselling support.
