Vision for Inclusion:
Community: Everyone is included.
Unity: United by our school's values.
Opportunity: Aim for happiness and success.
At Penwortham School all pupils, regardless of their specific needs or barriers are offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are a valued member of the wider school community. Our curriculum is inclusive, aspirational and text rich with a focus on mastery, meaning that no one gets left behind. It is expertly constructed by staff who share those values and who are knowledgeable, reflective and ambitious for all. Learning is carefully planned to be progressive, connected and purposeful ensuring that pupil experiences develop learning of genuine depth which we define as a change and addition to long term memory. Sequences of learning are reviewed rigorously to secure the highest possible outcomes for every child in our school.
As an Inclusion Centre of Excellence and a National Nurturing School we are passionate about ensuring equality of opportunity for all of our pupils. We have implemented an inclusive teaching and learning culture with an expectation that all pupils are supported and challenged appropriately to ensure that they achieve their full potential
Staff select from a comprehensive range of strategies and resources to maximise the learning for all. Children who require support to complement our universal offer may benefit from; pre-teaching, targeted interventions, focused adult support, bespoke resources and/or input from specialist staff (SENCO, ELSA’s, Learning Mentor, Education Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, Speech and Language Therapist).
Lessons build on and connect with prior learning to ensure a genuine deep understanding is achieved by all pupils. Teaching strategies are supported by evidence based research to avoid cognitive or sensory overload.
