Inclusion/Special Needs

St Elizabeth Catholic Primary is an inclusive school, where the needs, both academically and socially and emotionally, of all pupils are met. We want to make sure that children are happy, secure and successful and we acknowledge that all of our pupils are unique. 

At St Elizabeth Catholic Primary all pupils have the right of entitlement to equal access, equal opportunity and equal benefit from participating in every area and aspect of the school’s life. Every child is supported and expected to reach their full potential.

Sometimes some children or their families need extra help to make sure of this. There is a team of adults in school who organise and provide additional support for children, their parents and carers. These individuals are known as the Inclusion Team.

The Inclusion Team work closely with your child’s teachers to track your child’s progress in school and organise extra support if your child is falling behind or has additional needs. This support may be provided by adults in school, teachers and teaching assistants, or by specialists from outside of school such as Counsellors and Speech and Language Therapists. If you think your child may need additional support or you are worried about your child’s progress please talk to the class teacher or to a member of the Inclusion Team.
