Hunsbury Park Primary School has high ambitions for all its pupils and expects them to participate and achieve in every aspect of school life. Our commitment to equal opportunities is an important aspect of our overall commitment to be a fully inclusive school. This has been highlighted in our recent achievement of the Centre of Excelence Inclusion Quality Mark. We are immensly proud of the inclusive environment we offer to our children to achieve this.
Hunsbury Park Primary School aims to:
- set suitable learning challenges;
- respond to pupils’ diverse needs; and
- overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils.
We welcome all pupils and staff, irrespective of race, colour, creed or impairment. Every member of staff shares the responsibility to remove barriers to learning for all pupils, including those with a disability.
We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. Not all pupils with disabilities have special educational needs and not all pupils with SEN meet the definition of disability.
If a teacher, or you as a parent, feel that your child is experiencing difficulties at school we will be pleased to discuss the difficulties so that we can decide together what is best for your child. We believe that the closer we work together the more successful any help will be. Many problems can be sorted out easily by matching the level of help to the needs of the child with step-by-step programmes. Sometimes it is felt that a child needs a particular kind of help, in which case the help of specialists from outside school may be valuable.
Most children’s needs are met in the mainstream school but occasionally a child’s needs cannot be met from the resources normally available in school. HPPS has an additional Resourced Special Educational Needs Provision (‘The Hive’) that meets the needs of identified pupils from across the school.
All our systems and procedures are designed to enable all children to be included in all we do, so the children in ‘The Hive’ are therefore included fully in the life of the school.
