“The Inclusion Hub is well led and provides highly successful ways to make sure that all pupils have the utmost nurture and care.”
“The Inclusion Hub offers outstanding help for those pupils who have special educational needs related to behaviour and, as a result, they learn to manage their emotions and behave well in their lessons.” (OFSTED 2014)
At Christ Church Primary School we strongly support the principles of inclusion by ensuring that all children in the school, whatever their ability or disability, race, gender or religion are offered the same opportunities. We encourage all children to be actively involved in playing a full and positive role in the classroom with their peers and to gain a real sense of achievement.
Inclusion in education has, until recently, been limited to ensuring that children with special educational needs and disabilities be properly provided for within a mainstream school. Here at Christ Church we believe that inclusion extends far beyond just those children with special educational needs and should apply equally to those whose first language may not be English, those from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, children with a range of disabilities and those of different religions. Mainstream schools are not necessarily always the best place for all children to be but we will do our very best to ensure that those children who attend our school thrive.
Within the Christian ethos of our school we encourage our children not only to accept and tolerate differences but to celebrate them and to support each other in many ways. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind and will handle any such discrimination in a firm fair manner.
