Inclusive education means supporting all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. Our curriculum includes, not only the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum / National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of all pupils.
The Curriculum also included the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence. We work with children to develop their confidence and independence at all age and ability levels to support them to develop self-esteem and resilience in all aspects of their lives.
Some of the actions we take to support this include:
- Support all pupils to fulfill their potential despite any difficulty or disability they may have.
- Modify the curriculum and levels of support to meet the needs of individual children.
- Ensure that all teaching staff are aware of and sensitive to the needs of all pupils and have a good understanding of how best to meet their individual needs.
- Design an engaging curriculum that appeals to the interests of the children in school and engages their enthusiasm whilst developing a range of skills, which contribute to life long, learning.
Woodland School offers all children the opportunity to participate in activities outside the classroom by making reasonable adjustments to the organization of these. All trips and activities are risk assessed and adjustments made where necessary to reduce risk. We ensure that any transport booked caters for the requirements of our pupils. We ensure that pupils with SEND have an appropriate level of adult support to help them access learning outside the classroom.
