We have a strong commitment to equal opportunities and we aim to ensure that each child gets equal access to the curriculum and resources. Children with additional needs or disabilities are welcomed and we endeavour to support our children to achieve their best. We have partially adapted our building to accommodate children and their families with disabilities to ensure good access for wheelchair users on the ground floor especially for toilets and events. However, we do not have easy access to upstairs rooms due to the nature of the building. We have a text service for parents who are hearing impaired and we can employ signers for meetings when necessary. Sometimes we have visually impaired children and we work hard to ensure they are supported with equipment to support their learning.
We avoid stereotyping and encourage each child to develop a positive self-image and respect for others.
We aim to share knowledge and experience of the rich variety of cultures in our school through multi-cultural curriculum and resources.
We have children from all over the world with at least 40 different languages and several different faiths represented in our school. Where possible we try to use interpreters at our family meetings and try to get as many letters as possible translated into some of our community languages. Many of our staff are multi-lingual and they will be happy to interpret in school for our families.
