How we are inclusive
At Shephalbury Park it is important we help all children achieve to their full potential, regardless of any barriers to learning.
In order to accomplish this, children need to feel valued, listened to and respected. We ensure they have equal access to high quality provision, and support their learning, whatever educational need they may have. Support may be on an individual or small group basis, either in the classroom or another part of the school.
Some children may need the support of an Individual Education Plan or further professional support from the Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist, Behaviour Support Team, or Autistic Advisory service.
We track the progress of our children every half term and hold pupil progress meetings where those who are at risk of under achieving are discussed, regardless of ability. Intervention is then targeted and parents are consulted either by the class teacher or by the SENCo. Keeping parents informed is an important part of the process, if you have any questions about inclusion please contact the SENCO on the school number or email :firstname.lastname@example.org
