Inclusion at Downs Infants School
We are proud to be an inclusive school. We are committed to our equalities work, and strive hard to ensure that all children make the best progress they can from their starting points. We recognise that for some children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities), even small steps of progress are a result of enormous effort, and we try to celebrate these with them. We teach all children to value difference and to support their peers with things they find challenging. This includes children whose SEND impacts on their behaviour. Our message to all children is that we won't give up on helping you to overcome your challenges. Part of our PSHE curriculum deals with this directly.
At Downs Infant School we believe that every child is entitled to equal access to the curriculum that we provide. We endeavour to ensure equal access for all our pupils through appropriate planning, teaching, monitoring and assessment of the curriculum and through appropriate adaptation of the learning and physical environment as necessary.
