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 Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of all pupils.
The Curriculum also included the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence.
- We adopt inclusive practices and endeavour to support every child regardless of their level of need. For example we differentiate our lessons so that every child can join in and succeed in their learning, whatever level that may be at.
- We ensure that pupils follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum at a level and pace that is appropriate to their abilities. All children are regularly assessed and progress is measured. Parents are informed of these assessments and whether any extra support is needed to be put in place.
- Independence is encouraged at all ages and ability levels. In Early Years this can mean putting on their own coat or wellies, asking to have a drink or food, going to the toilet independently or asking for help. Our staff are able to support families with these steps and how to develop these skills.
- As a Nursery School it is crucial that we develop confidence, improve self-esteem and promote enthusiasm in all pupils. We do this by ensuring we have a caring and nurturing environment for all pupils. We share stories, songs and develop self-confidence through small jobs for the children.
