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.
- Our school ethos for SEND children at Butterknowle is; to create a high esteem environment, where SEND pupils enjoy learning independently. We are an inclusive school and believe that all children should be happy, safe, and proud of their achievements across the whole school day.
- Our school aims to provide all children with a well- planned and balanced education taking full account of National Curriculum Statutory requirements. Within the bounds of this we also provide for individual children’s special needs which may require individualised work or additional help.
- Our curriculum also includes the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence. Children are given opportunities to broaden experience, listen and talk about what they explore and investigate, develop skills and practice them.
