Inclusion and Special Educational Need

At Comberbach Nursery and Primary School we believe in participation for all. We want all children and adults to participate in learning, and we celebrate all members of our community. We aim to create an inclusive culture in our school where we are responsive to the diversity of children’s backgrounds, interests, experiences, knowledge and skills.
We value high quality teaching for all learners and actively monitor teaching and learning in the school to ensure we are providing this for all pupils. We aim to create a learning environment which is flexible enough to meet the needs of all members of our school community.
At Comberbach Nursery and Primary School, we follow the principles of inclusion as outlined in the ‘Code of Practice for Special Education Needs 2014’:

  • To ensure all pupils are offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.
  • All pupils will be given the opportunity to reach their full potential educationally, emotionally and physically.
  • All teachers views themselves of teachers of pupils with special education needs, teaching such pupils is a whole school responsibility.
  • All pupils with special education needs should have their needs met.
  • Pupils special educational needs will normally be met in the mainstream classroom.
  • Pupils views should be sought and taken into account.
  • Parents/Carers have a vital role to play in supporting their child’s education and therefore good home-school links are established.

If your child has additional needs, we will work with you to plan for them, and to liaise with other specialist services to ensure the highest standard of provision.
Please contact the Inclusion Coordinator, Sally Dakin, who is always happy to discuss any concerns or queries that you may have.
