The National Curriculum inclusion statement sets out the following essential principles for school to follow when developing an inclusive curriculum
- Setting suitable learning challenges
- Responding to pupil’s diverse learning needs
- Overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment for individuals and groups of pupils
At St Matthew’s we strongly believe that ‘we are all differently able’ and are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. We ensure that the needs of SEND pupils are met to the best of the school’s ability with the funds that we have available to us. The curriculum is differentiated in order to best meet the needs of your child and wherever possible resources are purchased and implemented to support their learning and development.
The curriculum is differentiated through careful planning in order for all pupils to access learning at their level. Teachers work in liaison with senior members of staff, the SENCO and external agencies to, wherever physically possible, provide learning opportunities that are beneficial to all and the meet the needs of the individual.
