Inclusion at VHPS

At VHPS we welcome children with different academic backgrounds and abilities. Our aim is to ensure the learning needs of all children are met in a safe, secure, happy and dynamic environment.

All members of staff at VHPS are advocates for inclusion. Our staff are continually working towards removing the barriers which may impact upon a child’s educational and emotional well-being. They understand different learning styles and offer children opportunities to learn in different ways through appropriate planning, teaching, collaboration and assessment. This is a significant focus and strength of our school. At VHPS we focus on ensuring that all children are challenged and nurtured to enable them to excel. Our below inclusion poster further highlights quality first teaching and equity within the school, recognising that students are champions and are given FAIR opportunities to achieve success regardless of circumstances. 

Inclusive teaching acknowledges that all students possess unique abilities and behaviours and support is modified and scaffolded to ensure all children are given the opportunity for equity in their learning.

Our dedicated Inclusion Team offers additional support for children with Special Educational Needs, those who may have additional educational needs and children where English is an additional language.  Support is offered in a variety of different ways, which include but is not limited to:

  • In class support from our learning support teachers and/or learning support assistants 
  • Targeted maths, literacy, reading and phonics interventions
  • Gross and fine motor skills groups
  • Social skills  and emotional regulation groups
  • Communication group
  • Invitational extracurricular activities
  • Access to pastoral care and support and appropriate sessions. 
  • English as an additional language support groups
  • Consultation with class teachers to ensure more able, gifted and talented students are challenged

We invest heavily in ensuring that we have a team around the child approach whereby parents, teachers and specialists all provide support for the individual child
