Welcome to the Inclusion Department 

Wordle1

The Inclusion Department offers a range of provisions to enable students to become self-sufficient, independent learners and to prepare them for the wider world.

Kingsmead School recognises that it is the right of every student to be educated to their fullest potential by having access to whole curriculum activities whilst any additional educational needs are also met.  The school embraces the concept of inclusion and endeavours to reflect this in our practice when working with students.

The Inclusion Department address the particular needs of student by:

  • helping us as an institution recognise and be flexible in responding to a particular or changing pattern of need
  • ensuring that curriculum developments and departmental policies and Schemes of Work reflect inclusion policy
  • supporting colleagues in order to ensure that all students achieve their full potential

The Student Learning Centre (SLC)

The purpose of the SLC is to provide a short term, alternative working environment for students who are experiencing emotional and/or behavioural difficulties and to support students until they can be reintegrated into mainstream lessons.  Students working in the SLC will have an individual learning programme based upon their practical needs.

Staffing

The Inclusion cohort comprises a broad spectrum of staff including teachers, teaching assistants, cover supervisors, 1:1 tutors, learning mentors, attendance staff and the KS2 transition team.

Inclusion works in collaboration with the Behaviour for Learning (BFL) Team, Senior Leadership Team, Learning Directors of Year, Learning Directors of Department, external agencies, parents and stakeholders.
