Our inclusion coordinator advises on good practice in line with latest Government and local guidance and any changes are reflected in our Inclusion, Equalities and Special Needs policies and our TSF SEND Information Report. These are reviewed annually by our Governors. We have an Inclusion Leaflet for parents and carers.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy outlines how we support families who are eligible for the Government’s Pupil Premium Grant. Our Accessibility Plan is reviewed annually by our Governing Body. This enables us to consider any additional actions to increase access to the school and the curriculum by children with disabilities. Documents supporting these initiatives can be found under Policies in the About Us tab.
At Trafalgar Infant School we believe in equality of opportunity We will follow the existing equality legislation (The Equality Act 2010) that now extends protection from discrimination in nine areas: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, sexual orientation. We will eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations for children, staff, mothers, fathers, carers, and all others who use the school facilities. Please see our TSF Equalities Policy for more information
We will meet diverse needs and advance equality by:
- Having a whole-school Inclusion policy and following it in practice.
- Having an Accessibility Plan – aimed at reducing barriers to achievement by making reasonable adjustments for children and adults who are disabled and/or have special educational needs; improving the physical environment to enable disabled children/all other users of the school to take advantage of education, facilities and services provided; improving the availability of accessible information to disabled pupils, staff, mothers, fathers and carers.
- Having a Behaviour Management and Anti-Bullying policy and following it in practice
- Securing and maintaining outstanding teaching, learning and assessment for all children.
- Closing the gap in achievementbetween different groups and national standards
- Building a cohesive school community where children and adults can thrive.
