All pupils at Wortham School are equally valued, regardless of their level of need. They are included in every aspect of school life for example: sharing meal times, recreation times, school clubs and visits in line with our Health and Safety and School Behaviour Policies. Wortham Primary School is an inclusive school, fostering a sense of community and belonging through its vision statement:
At Wortham Primary School we work together to enable our children to become successful learners, to know and understand that they are valued and to prepare them for life in the local and worldwide community.
Wortham Community Primary School seeks to provide an inclusive, broad and balanced curriculum for all pupils, according to their needs. All staff accepts responsibility for providing all pupils with realistic learning goals in a broad-based, appropriate curriculum.
We believe in nurturing and developing the educational, social, emotional, cultural and spiritual aspects by curriculum design and teaching approaches.
Pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) may require work to be presented and differentiated to match their needs enabling them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities.
Special Educational Need might be an explanation for delayed or slower progress but is not an excuse, and we make every effort to narrow the gap in attainment between vulnerable groups of learners and others.
Teachers endeavour to take account of these requirements and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of pupils.
We strive to make a clear distinction between "underachievement" – often caused by a poor early experience of learning - and special educational needs.
