Inclusion and Equalities

Inclusion

As a staff we are committed to the Local Authority policy on inclusive education and we endeavour to ensure that all aspects of our curriculum and environment facilitate this. In partnership with parents and other professionals we strive to provide for the needs of all the individual children in our care.

We are a scerts school. We do not endorse the A.B.A approach.

Equalities

At Woodgrange we believe in the inherent equality of all individuals, irrespective of physical or mental ability, gender or race, and try to reflect these both in learning opportunities we offer the children and in the general manner in which all those who come into contact with our school are treated. We wholeheartedly endorse the Local Authority’s Equal Opportunities policy.
