Inclusion / SEN/D

Spring Gardens Primary School is a fully inclusive school that ensures that all pupils achieve their potential, personally, socially, emotionally, physically and educationally. We believe it is essential to provide a well balanced, challenging curriculum for all children. We are committed to ensuring that all children, including those with Special Educational Needs or Disability [SEN/D], receive a high quality, accessible and inclusive curriculum.

We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity regardless of race, belief, disability, sexual orientation, gender or class and to provide equality of access for all.

We believe it is important that children acquire skills, knowledge and confidence that can be applied to all future learning experiences; these include social, physical, moral and spiritual development. We strive to provide a school environment that is secure, stimulating, supportive and memorable, whereby each child feels valued as part of our community and encouraged to achieve their full potential. 


Inclusion Staff


All Teachers are teachers of all children in our school. However,  we do have designated staff who lead and support with certain aspects of inclusion.
