RE and Inclusion

The school teaches about the world’s major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. We want children to learn respect for other religions and to develop understanding, reflecting our own multi-cultural community.

RE is taught within classes and assemblies. Parents do have the right of withdrawal from RE. You should contact the Headteacher to find out more.

Assemblies

Assemblies are held regularly for different year groups and, in accordance with guidance, may constitute an act of collective worship that is ‘mainly Christian’ in nature. Children are encouraged to contribute to assemblies by presenting their projects in class assemblies. We like to invite parents to these events. We celebrate good work and achievement in our Friday ‘high flyer’ assemblies.

We would like all children to participate fully in all school activities but you do have the right as a parent to withdraw your child from Religious Education and collective worship. You should make us aware of this by contacting your class teacher.

 

SpECIAL NEEDS AND INCLUSION

At Kelvin Grove, we are building an excellent and inclusive school community where children are proud of their achievements and excel in their learning. We value individuality and we are committed to providing opportunities for all children to achieve their best. We welcome all students equally and are committed to offering an inclusive, broad and balanced curriculum to ensure all pupils progress to their maximum potential. We promote children’s strengths and challenge every child accordingly. We also aim to identify needs early and provide appropriate support.

The Children & Families Act (2014) sets out new requirements to be implemented for supporting children and young people/adults with Special Education Needs & Disabilities. We work in partnership with external agencies and the appropriate local authority services to ensure that all children, including those with SEND, make the best possible progress. The school can provide for children with the following areas of SEND as outlined in the SEN Code of Practice:

  • Communication and interaction
  • Cognition and Learning
  • Social, Emotional and Mental Health
  • Physical and/or Sensory

The Department for Education has created a useful factsheet for parents and carers about children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities. It can be downloaded here:
