At St. Joseph’s Catholic primary School, we believe that inclusive education means supporting all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. Our curriculum includes, not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of our children. Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for life-long learning, personal growth and development of independence.
Some of the actions we may take to achieve this are:
- Help all pupils achieve to the best of their abilities, despite any difficulty or disability they may have.
- Modify the curriculum to meet individual needs.
- Ensure that teaching staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all pupils, teaching pupils in a way that is more appropriate to their needs.
- To make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes and gain maximum access to the curriculum.
More details on how we adapt information, our environment and curriculum can be found in the Accessibility Plan which you ca find in the School Policies section of our website.
At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we ensure that all children are offered the opportunity to participate in activities outside the classroom and extra-curricular activities. We ensure that reasonable adjustments are made in order to enable children with SEND to access a full curriculum and enrichment experiences. We are prepared to seek advice, resources, equipment and training in order to provide high quality experiences for our children. We also seek appropriate support and advice from the settings for our excursions and ensure that specific risk assessments are in place prior to any outings or visits. As a school, we ensure that suitable and accessible transport is provided and that comprehensive risk assessments cover travel arrangements and activities in order to ensure that all children are safe during excursions.
