All people are unique in terms of characteristics, interests, abilities, experience, motivation and learning needs. We value and take account of these wide diversities, providing access to high quality and appropriate education and training for all members of our school community. The school is committed to the full inclusion of all pupils. Our school vision and motto, ‘Together We’re Better’, form the basis for all we do in school, including our work with children who have additional learning needs.
