At Delves Lane Primary School, we are committed to equality. We aim for every pupil to fulfil their potential no matter what their needs. Our School is committed to anti-discriminatory practice which promotes equality of opportunity, and values diversity for all children and families. We aim to:
- provide a secure and accessible environment in which all of our children can flourish, and in which all contributions are considered and valued
- include and value the contribution of all families to our understanding of equality and diversity
- provide positive non-stereotyping information about gender roles, diverse ethnic and cultural groups and disabled people
- improve our knowledge and understanding of issues of anti-discriminatory practice, promoting equality and valuing diversity.
- make inclusion a thread that runs through all of the activities of the school
Delves Lane Primary School prides itself on being very inclusive and will endeavour to support every child, regardless of their level of need. All pupils follow the National Curriculum at a level and a pace that is appropriate to their abilities. If necessary, modifications to the curriculum may be implemented.
In order to successfully match pupil ability to the curriculum, the following actions may need to be considered:
- ensure that all pupils can have access to the school curriculum and all school activities
- help all pupils achieve to the best of their abilities, despite any difficulty or disability they may have
- ensure that all staff are aware of – and are sensitive to – the needs of all pupils
- endeavour to raise children’s confidence and self-esteem
- work in partnership with parents/ carers, pupils and relevant external agencies in order to provide for children’s special educational needs and disabilities
- identify at the earliest opportunity, all children that need special consideration to support their needs (whether these are educational, social, physical or emotional)
- make suitable provision for children with SEND to fully develop their abilities, interests and aptitudes, and gain maximum access to the curriculum
- promote self-worth and enthusiasm by encouraging independence at all age and ability levels
- give every child the entitlement to a sense of achievement
- regularly review policies in order to achieve best practice
