Inclusive education means supporting all pupils to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of school life alongside their peers. Our curriculum includes, not only the formal requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum / National Curriculum, but also a range of additional opportunities to enrich the experiences of all pupils.
The Curriculum also included the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence.
At St Joseph’s we pride ourselves on our inclusive practices and endeavour to support every child regardless of their level of need. Through effective differentiation and quality first teaching we aim to ensure pupils follow Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum / National Curriculum at a level and pace that is appropriate to their abilities.
Additional support and/or intervention may be put in place as needed but this is carefully planned to allow independence to be encouraged at all ages and ability levels. At St Joseph’s our ethos supports children to develop confidence, improve self-esteem and promote enthusiasm in all pupils.
