Long Ditton Infant and Nursery School respects the unique contribution, which every individual can make to the community. We accept individual differences in ability, aptitude and level of skills whilst holding high expectations and aspirations for each individual child.
Inclusion is about attitudes and values, not just organisation and practice. We believe that effective inclusion is based on the core values of entitlement, equality, partnership and diversity. Inclusion is the responsibility of every member of the school community.
At Long Ditton Infant and Nursery School we provide an inclusive environment where everyone has access to the best opportunities and highest quality of provision and where there are no barriers to learning; a place where children feel valued and secure; a place where children are excited about learning and are given the opportunities to fulfil their potential.
We constantly review ways to increase learning and improve levels of attainment for everyone, particularly children who are at risk of under-achieving, those who are vulnerable or who have additional needs. This means that equality of opportunity will be a reality for our children in an environment where the individuality of every child is promoted. We recognise that this does not mean treating everybody in the same way, but taking account of individuals’ different life experiences and needs.
If you would like to discuss your child’s specific needs or require more information please contact Mrs Polly Eaton, Inclusion Manager, on 0208 398 4398 or contact the school office to arrange a meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org.
