Inclusion in education is a whole school commitment to ensure all pupils receive a positive educational experience. Ambitious, high-quality inclusive education and training leads to reduced exclusion or isolation, discrimination, barriers to learning and increases participation and working to secure ambitious outcomes.
With an increased focus on minimising inequalities, through the active promotion of the 2010 Equality Act and the development of a curriculum for social justice, we can support you to develop policies and practice that demonstrate strong shared inclusive values and help you to evidence the effectiveness of alternative strategies for supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils.
Where a child is identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), schools and settings should take action to put in place support to enable the pupil to participate, learn and make progress, removing barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This is known as the graduated response, an approach to assess, plan, do and review.
We can help you to deliver the graduated response and ensure every child or young person gets the right support to meet his or her individual needs.
Safeguarding in education relates to the legal duties headteachers, teachers, staff and governors must follow to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people; because every child and young person has the right to be safe.
We offer a range of services and training which adhere to ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (September 2019) guidance to ensure children and young people are kept safe from any form of abuse or neglect.
We will work with you to ensure you have the skills and training to identify children at risk, ensure action is timely and that all leaders and managers fulfil all statutory responsibilities.
As every child is unique and has individual needs we consider the context and setting when delivering support. Through targeted 1:1 intervention and/or whole school approaches we can provide support to children and those that support them.
Our specialist staff offer you a diverse range of experiences and skills that provide a rich knowledge base and the ability to translate this into practical solutions for supporting all children and young people.
