Inclusion in education is an approach to educating students with special educational needs. Under the inclusion model, students with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled students.

Thomas Gamuel Primary School is constantly striving to become an increasingly inclusive school. The school staff and governors believe that, in most cases, children who experience barriers to learning benefit from attending their local mainstream school. We seek to work with children, parents and carers, the local education authority and appropriate agencies to reduce or remove those barriers wherever possible.

Below you will find the school's Inclusion Policy which highlights the type of provision that pupils with SEN, those who speak English as an additional language, those who are looked after by the Local Authority and those who are the most able receive at the school.

We have also produced a detailed Special Educational Needs report, in line with section 69 of the Children and Families Act 2014, providing answers to any questions you may have about SEN provision in the school. This can also be accessed by clicking on the link below.
