Inclusion Faculty Vision

Our vision is for a truly inclusive education, where all pupils achieve their potential academically and personally, regardless of attainment levels on entry or disability. We aim to increase whole school and community awareness of the importance of excellent “quality first” teaching and providing equity of opportunity for all pupils. We are committed to providing an integrated, adaptive and inclusive curriculum to meet individual needs, promoting positive achievement and independence for all.

In the Inclusion Faculty we will endeavour to support teachers in providing all pupils with appropriate and effective access to the subject curriculum. We promote equality and equity by raising awareness of our unique pupils’ individual needs, ensuring different and diverse pupils learn side-by-side in the same learning environment. All pupils have access to the same enrichment activities, opportunities to contribute to leadership and school governance and attend school trips. Young people and their families are at the heart of all that we do, taking part in decisions that affect them and setting ambitious outcomes.

A tiered programme of bespoke, evidence based provision ensures that pupils with SEND receive targeted support that is well-matched to address any barriers that pupils are experiencing with their learning. These are delivered by a team of specialist Teaching Assistants and Teachers who have received extensive training in adaptations within the areas they deliver.

Our aim is that pupils of Houlton leave us happy and successful, equipped with the strategies they need to ensure that they have the confidence to be relentless in their pursuit of their dreams, hopes and aspirations.
