All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives, and make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training (6.1 final draft CoP).

In our school, we aim to offer excellence and choice to all our children, whatever their ability or needs. We have high expectations of all our children and aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community and ensure children and parents are at the heart of decision making. In our Ofsted inspection (December 2015) it was recognised that:

Provision for disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is strong.

Teaching assistants are very effective in supporting pupils’ learning, including those pupils with special educational needs.

Current pupils are making at least the expected progress in English and mathematics and many are making more than the expected progress. This includes pupils with special educational needs and those who are disadvantaged.
