SEND and Inclusion

At Stanbridge Primary School, we are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all our pupils, whatever their needs or abilities. Our aim is to enable all pupils to enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum, supporting the development of the whole child.


We are a friendly and welcoming school that embeds a fully inclusive approach to education for all. At Stanbridge Primary school, our inclusive ethos aims to encourage high expectations for all children and staff alike and our school motto "be brave; not perfect" permeates throughout daily life.

We endeavour to have strong relationships with families and it is essential to us that you have an active role in the discussion around your child; you know them best! We understand that every child is unique and listening to the family gives us a more holistic view of what approaches will suit each child best.


We meet pupil’s educational needs in a number of ways and this can differ from pupil to pupil according to the types of educational needs that they may have and the ways they find learning most engaging. All of this is taken into consideration to enhance and develop inclusion at every level. This can be seen in the classroom as small group work, use of additional resources, multi-sensory learning and adapting the teachers approach pupil to pupil.
