Inclusivity is at the very heart of Meriden CE Primary School. We value all as a gift from God where each individual, within the school family, has the opportunity to explore their own potential and purpose.
We are totally committed to providing high quality provision and support for all pupils. We recognise that all children are individuals with their own specific needs, gifts and talents. We are a very inclusive school and modify tasks where needed to ensure that all children can access the curriculum and achieve their full potential. Children may be included on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities register and will have a Pupil Passport or My Support Plan which sets targets and outlines actions to support them. Where appropriate, a referral to an external support agency may be made. We support children and parents in addressing behaviour issues and will put strategies in place to support children in gaining the skills to manage and be responsible for their own behaviour. Above all, we want to raise the self-esteem of all our children and give them the skills to enjoy life in and out of school. We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND pupils. This may be done through short-term interventions, before school groups, nurture groups and personalised learning plans.
