Thurleigh Lower School

Our Federation is committed to providing an excellent, enriched, enjoyable education to all the children attending our schools. We believe that all children, regardless of race, gender, social status, special educational need or disability, share a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and have the right to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

We believe that all children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

We are committed to inclusion. Part of the schools strategic planning for improvement is to develop cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties.

This does not mean that we will treat all learners in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs. Creating truly personalised ways into learning.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background. We pay particular attention to the provision for and the achievement of different groups of learners:

• girls and boys, men and women
• minority ethnic and faith groups, Travelers, asylum seekers and refugees
• learners who need support to learn English as an additional language (EAL)
• learners with special educational needs
• learners who are disabled
• those who are able learners
• those who are children looked after by the local authority and adopted children
• others such as those who are sick; those who are young carers; those who are in families under stress; pregnant school girls and teenage mothers
• any learners who are at risk of disaffection and exclusion

Thurleigh Preschool

• To enhance children’s learning in a play based environment, offering care to all children and where possible catering for all needs and disabilities.
• We offer a wide range of activities, both indoors and out and adapt these according to the child’s abilities. We support communication and language through books, adult led activities, questions and shared experiences. Physical play is supported through indoor and outdoor play, risk taking and writing/mark making. PSED is strongly encouraged through self care support, sharing feelings at circle time and in nurture groups as well as role play activities.
• We look at each child’s individual needs, if a child has additional needs that would take up more of our time we would look into what support we can get to meet their needs.
• We have where necessary advised parents to seek advice from the local children’s centre regarding speech therapy, dietary needs, toilet training.
