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 includes the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence.
- At Aycliffe Village Primary School we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive education for all pupils and endeavour to support every child regardless of their need.
- All pupils follow the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum at a pace which is appropriate for them and where necessary we implement changes and adaptations to make it accessible for all. This can include differentiating resources; enlarging print; coloured overlays in reading; tasks broken down into more manageable steps for some pupils.
- Independence is always encouraged and work is matched closely to the needs of the children in order for them to achieve and be successful. Quality First Teaching is paramount to children’s success in the classroom.
- Our school develops confidence and self-esteem in all pupils. Achievements are celebrated in a weekly assembly and this is for progress and achievement as well as attainment.
