Watton Junior School takes a whole school approach to Inclusion.
We work together to ensure every child achieves the best possible outcomes they can, academically, socially and emotionally. We care about the development of the whole child and have high expectations for all children. We recognise that some children may need additional help to support their individual learning needs. In collaboration with parents, carers and the support of external agencies, we aim for all children to make progress, academic, social and emotional progress, from their own starting points.
The needs of children with English as an additional language, physical impairment or medical needs are carefully considered. Support is provided appropriately to assist each child’s needs. Watton Junior School is an inclusive school. We accept children with EHCPs in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice.
It is our belief that all pupils of this school have a right of access to opportunities regardless of ability, age, gender, physical ability, capability or characteristics, racial or ethnic group, religious beliefs and social background. We also believe that all pupils should be encouraged to understand the implications of equal opportunity and regard and should be challenged to dispel the ignorance and distrust which breeds prejudice and discrimination.
We have a strong Pupil Support Team lead by a Trust SENDCo. We are an inclusive school and do our utmost to support Individual pupils with additional needs in a mainstream school where appropriate.
