Here at Hampton Hargate Primary we believe in an inclusive environment. We believe that the child is at the centre of everything we do. All children should be happy and enjoy themselves when they are in school. Each child’s individual learning styles should be respected. All children should have high but attainable targets for them to enable them to achieve their full potential. There should be good communication with parents. Every child should be given an appropriate level of support but at the same time be encouraged to become independent learners.
To enable children to achieve this the staff are given regular whole school and individual training to be able to meet the individual needs of the children within their class. There are a number of groups which give groups of children extra help in the areas they need it; for example handwriting groups, reading groups, numeracy groups, nurture groups, sensory circuits.
Then there are groups which area specifically tailored to individuals; occupational therapy programmes, speech and language programmes, physiotherapy programmes. Children are given challenging but achievable targets which are suited to their own individual needs. Parents are invited in for regular meetings and there is an open door policy to both the class teacher and SENCos at other times.
