Inclusion and SEND
Welcome to Churchfields Infants' School Inclusion page
My name is Mrs Emma Beck and I am the Inclusion Manager for our school. This role includes being the Special Educational Needs Coordinator.
Here at Churchfields Infants’, we strive to follow the principles of full inclusion and we work hard to realise them. We aim to place children at the centre of all we do in the hope that they realise their full potential, however that looks for them. Alongside my SEN Governor, Mrs Claudine Crossley, and our Headteacher, we review policy and practice in line with the Borough’s agreed guidelines and the 'Special Needs Code of Practice'. All children identified as having special needs receive support in school in line with this policy and parents are informed of all progress at regular review meetings. The policy is available in this section of the website alongside our SEN report.
I am proud to say that our school has been successful in implementing its policy and the children with special needs here at Churchfields are given the best possible support that we can offer in order to help them to develop and thrive whilst with us. We monitor and track progress through Individual Plans and our assessment arrangements have helped the school to identify children with special needs and provide early support. Our close relationships with external support services, eg Educational Psychology and Outreach teachers, enable us to continue to grow and learn as staff, and help us to provide the best that we can for the vulnerable children in our care.
Every endeavour is made to ensure that pupils with disabilities in the school are included fully and appropriately through promoting respect and tolerance for others and maintaining a well-ordered environment. We strive to support children with disabilities, providing them with an appropriate individualised and balanced curriculum and the opportunity to be fully involved in the life of the school.
