Inclusion Faculty

The Inclusion Faculty is made up of two specialist teams: the Ethnic Minority Achievement (EMA) and the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) departments. The EMA HoD and the SENDCO work closely with the Head of faculty, the SLT link for Inclusion as well as the wider Inclusion team at Park View. 

Statement

Park View is an inclusive school where students have equal opportunities to fulfil their full potential in all aspects of their development, regardless of their type of additional need.

Students with Additional Needs catered for within the Inclusion Faculty:

  • EAL         English as an Additional Language
  • SEND     Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities

The policy for additional needs pupils is a fundamental part of the Equal Opportunities philosophy of the school and underpins all teaching and learning within the school:

  • Providing equality of opportunity for all students with additional needs
  • Developing and promoting understanding , respect and tolerance amongst all students
  • Providing access to the curriculum so that all additional needs students can achieve their potential
  • Equipping all additional needs students with knowledge, understanding and skills to enable them to become responsible citizens within the community
  • Enabling all additional needs students to achieve the highest possible standards of achievement and behavior
  • Enabling additional needs students to contribute to and take increasing responsibility for their own learning

Partnerships - A Whole School Approach

All staff have the responsibility to cater for the needs of all the students in their care. This necessitates high levels of communication between the Inclusion Faculty, the rest of the Inclusion Team, outside agencies and other internal staff. Many additional needs students require holistic support both pastorally and academically. These students are flagged up at SCBL meetings (Significant and Complex Barriers to Learning).

SCBL Meetings: led by pastoral staff - group of staff drawn from the Inclusion Faculty and the Wider Inclusion Team. This group of professionals meets fortnightly to discuss interventions and alternative provision to support our most vulnerable students.
