Our aim is to ensure that all children are valued, respected and welcomed to the school, whatever their additional educational needs. In 2011 the school was proud to achieve the Inclusion Quality Mark. This recognises that our school is an environment in which:
• children feel safe, secure, valued and respected
• children are confident to talk openly and are sure of being listened to
• the curriculum is used to provide opportunities for increasing self-awareness,
self-esteem, assertiveness and decision-making
• we work with parents and outside agencies to ensure the welfare of all children
Our procedure for identifying and assessing the special needs of individual children involves the child as well as parents, teaching staff and (if necessary) external support agencies. You can see our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Policy documents, including our Local Offer under the SEND reforms, on our policies page.
Any parents who are concerned about their child’s progress should make an appointment to speak to the class teacher and / or our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCO), Heidi Wood and Rachel Corcoran.
‘Each child is made to feel special and important.
Confidence is encouraged and nurtured by
the excellent teaching staff.’
We are able to provide an environment which enables access for all pupils. The school has a stair lift and a disabled toilet.
Gifted, able and talented
Our school has, at any time, a number of able, talented and gifted pupils. We recognise academic and practical performance as well as outstanding artistic, musical or physical skills and creative talent. We ensure that children are always encouraged to work to the best of their ability and to take advantage of every learning opportunity, both in school and elsewhere.
‘Bathampton is a great school due to its diversity,
playfulness and attention to each and every personality.’
