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 included the social aspects that are essential for lifelong learning, personal growth and development of independence.
Nettlesworth Primary School is a place where inclusion, pupil voice and respect are valued.
Our school aims to provide all children with a well- planned and balanced education taking full account of National Curriculum Statutory requirements. Within the bounds of this we also provide for individual children’s special needs which may require more challenging work or additional help. We are an Inclusion Quality Mark School, who focuses on the pursuit of outstanding teaching and learning and creating an environment in which every student, including those who do not have disabilities, have the opportunity to flourish.
We are a NACE accredited school (an award in recognition of school-wide high-quality provision for more able learners within a context of challenge for all) and ensure there is a whole school commitment and a clear focus to providing for More Able Gifted and Talented pupils. We provide pupils with a wide range of experiences and opportunities individualised to their personal needs and interests. Parents are closely involved in the education of their child and are consulted about their provision.
As a Rights Respecting Level 2 School, we place the UNCRC (United Conventions of the Rights of a Child) at the heart of its planning, policies and practice. The school has a Rights Respecting Ethos, where children are empowered to become active citizens and learners.
Nettlesworth Primary School is like a family, where everyone is cared for. We provide a secure and happy environment in which children, as members of the school family, acquire the basic skills needed in order to make progress in all aspects of their life. We work together where all members of the community feel safe, achieve and make a positive contribution to the school and the wider community.
Children are given opportunities to broaden experience, listen and talk about what they explore and investigate, develop skills and practice them. You can access much more information about our curriculum including teaching and learning via our website.
