Inclusive practice can be defined as attitudes and methods that ensure all learners can access mainstream education. At St Thomas More, we work together to make sure all learners feel welcome and valued, and that they get the right support to help them develop their talents and achieve their goals. We believe that when education is truly inclusive it can actually benefit all learners, not just those pupils with additional needs.
At St Thomas More we are inspired by Catholic faith and practice. We recognise that all pupils are entitled to a quality of provision that will enable them to achieve their potential. We believe in positive intervention, removing barriers to learning, raising expectations and levels of achievement and working in partnership with other agencies in order to provide a positive educational experience for all our pupils including those with a special educational need or disability.
We recognise the diverse and individual needs of all of our pupils and take into account the additional support required by those children with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Our School is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity, prevent any pupils from being treated less favourably and valuing diversity for all children and families.
In this way, we are committed to providing a truly inclusive curriculum.
