Inclusion at DPS
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
Deer Park School is dedicated to promoting an inclusive ethos across the school community. We believe that inclusion is directly related to diversity and equality which we promote for all children in our care, irrespective of their gender, age, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background. We are highly committed to adaptive provision and the high achievement of all groups of learners.
Our aims for all of our pupils, including those with SEND
- Every child’s individual needs to be met and supported so that they feel happy, confident, and valued.
- Every child to be treated as an individual and encouraged to reach their maximum potential as a valued member of our community and society.
- Every child to achieve their full academic potential, access the full curriculum, and be well prepared for the next stage in their education
We work within the Borough of Richmond guidance on provision for children with SEND in mainstream schools, which explains the ways pupils/children/students with different additional needs are provided for within the school. We also follow our SEND Policy and we also have an ‘Accessibility Strategy and Action Plan’
