Inclusion

Vision

At Lawn Primary and Nursery School we believe that an effective school is an inclusive school. We recognise the need to implement our ethos in the classroom and beyond to meet the needs of our children. We want them to be safe, achieve, be healthy, enjoy life and grow up to be successful adults who will make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.

Our school welcomes all learners and is committed to providing them with the entitlement to succeed and reach the highest level of personal achievement. Where children have additional needs, steps will be taken to prevent these from becoming a barrier to learning. By this positive action, we believe all our children, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, special needs, attainment and background, will receive an equal opportunity to make progress and fulfil their potential.

 

Children Looked After

At Lawn Primary and Nursery School we strive to promote the inclusion, well-being and achievement of children in school who are looked after.

It is recognised that, nationally, children in public care have a tendency to significantly underachieve when compared to their peers.

The Governing Body and teaching staff are committed to following the current government guidelines in the support of young people in care. They have appointed a designated teacher and Governor who will act as advocates for these children and promote their needs and well being whilst in the school.

The designated teacher for Children Looked After is Emma Jelley.
