Inclusion and Equality
We see every child as an individual and think of their needs academically and pastorally. We like to work with you to support the children to ensure that they are all fully included at Vauvert.
Our most recent school inspection (June 2019) highlighted how we support our children with additional needs at Vauvert as a strength of the school:
• The school has a highly inclusive ethos. Teachers frequently reflect local, national and international interests in assemblies and learning tasks. They use their detailed knowledge of individual children to anticipate any potential challenges children may face. All staff actively promote tolerance and patience throughout the school.
• Children who need additional support benefit from a wide range of flexible and responsive support strategies, very well managed by the special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO). This is helping children to engage in learning and access all areas of the curriculum. Successful interventions include early stage phonics, speech and language programmes (Speechlink) and a highly effective reading recovery programme. These have been particularly helpful in supporting children to make significant progress in reading, writing and communication.
If you ever feel that something is preventing your child from making progress please get in touch with the class teacher, headteacher or SENCo (Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator). You may, for example, need to inform the teacher if your child has difficulty in seeing or hearing, or if stressful circumstances outside school are causing unhappiness or behaviour problems. We are keen to help.
