Welcome to the Inclusion Team's page
The Inclusion Team's job is to support children to:
Be Happy, Healthy, Safe and Ready to Learn
The inclusion team coordinates and provides all different types of support for your child to enable them to aspire, enjoy and achieve at Grimes Dyke Primary School.
Whether it is putting in place support to help with fine motor skills or delivering a programme to develop self-esteem, or arranging exra reading support while mum is poorly to counselling a pupil over a bereavement.
We work to encourage children’s development and well being and seek to ensure every child feels happy, healthy and safe and is supported in their learning.
The inclusion team also supports parents and works with outside agencies to ensure all children’s additional or different needs are met and that they are receiving the full support they need.
Please feel free to talk to us at school or contact the inclusion office if you have any questions.
We know that indifference, intolerance and hostility towards people who seem different can lead to extreme social isolation, mental illness and profoundly unhappy lives. This includes people with disabilities, different needs, different skin colour.
Thankfully, we also know that helping young people – as well as their families– to understand differences as they grow up will equip a new generation with the knowledge to accept and empathise with all people.
During Autism awareness Week we focused on people with autism and the theme 'It's okay to be different!'
At least 1 in 100 people in the UK have autism... so chances are there are autistic people at our school and in our community who you see every day.
We learned about all our differences, even celebrating them: It's what makes us unique!! We taught the children about autism in imaginative lessons, doing fun activities and some assemblies.
