At East Meon we have key principles of Inclusion. These principles underpin all of the work that we do with every child but they are particularly poignant when considering our pupils who may face additional challenges or barriers to learning.
Our principles are:
* All adults believe that all children can achieve
Every adult that works at East Meon understands that children are all unique and that every child comes to school with their own starting points. We take time to see each child clearly and ensure that they feel proud of the progress they make. We work hard to only compare a child to their past selves to ensure that we see their steps of progress however small they may be. We also put into place additional support where necessary that can accelerate the speed at which our pupils can achieve the next steps on their learning journey.
* Every child should feel success, every day
We believe that all children have talents that teachers are charged with discovering. We recognise that the traditional teaching model and the standard curriculum is not right for every child and that some children may need to have adjustments made, in order to give them opportunities to feel successful. The staff team will work tirelessly to provide these adjustments and through engaging pupils and celebrating their individuality, we facilitate their daily moments of success.
* Every child feels seen, heard and valued
Time is given to all children to discuss any worries or concerns that they may have. We recognise the importance of good mental and emotional well-being and staff are aware of the factors that can influence this can have on a child's ability to work. Some pupils may need to access a greater level of support to meet their emotional needs and for these pupils we offer access to Nurture groups and Soft Start mornings. We encourage every child to acknowledge the positive attributes that they have and to share them in class and on the playground.
* Staff all demonstrate all of these principles on a daily basis
