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 Ramshaw Primary School we endeavor to provide a safe and caring learning environment where all children can enjoy learning, experience success, have self-respect and aspirations to reach their full potential. Children are at the core of our school where we take pride in helping all of our pupils develop into the best they can be.
In order to meet the needs of all the children who begin their school life at Ramshaw Primary, we visit them in their pre-school environment and liaise closely with parents, carers and staff to gain an understanding of their personality, ability and needs – this therefore helps us to plan their EYFS curriculum to meet their individual needs and allow them to flourish throughout the school. This approach continues throughout their time in school, where staff and parents work closely together to ensure they are accessing the National Curriculum at level and pace that is appropriate to their abilities.
Our intent is that all children at Ramshaw Primary School are encouraged to become independent, inquiring learners, who have belief in themselves and respect for others. As a small school we are able to focus our teaching and learning on the needs of all pupils and in turn having high expectations for all of them. All children are encouraged to strive for success within our broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum. We promote and celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking so that children are not afraid to make mistakes and see this can be an opportunity to learn from.
We encourage children to take ownership of and responsibility for their learning, helping them develop the confidence and the curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to quality feedback. We praise children for their hard work, determination and for having a positive attitude.
Ramshaw Primary is an inclusive school where everyone can flourish, whatever their background we promote an ethos of respect and empathy. Diversity is valued and celebrated within school and in the wider world. As a school community we take care in educating everyone about the needs of others and how best to meet them. To engage with all members of the school community we have open and honest communication with parents, carers and specialists.
