Published: 13 March 2017

Why this is leading practice

 Whitehouse Common Primary School continually reviews and develops their inclusive practice. The impact of this rigorous strive for excellence is that progress and achievement for all groups of children is tracked, maintained, evaluated, revised and implemented to the specific needs of each child. This cyclical process involves parents/carers, pupils, staff and outside agencies which results in consistent, cohesive and highly inclusive provision for all.

Impact to date


Rationale / Start Point

 At Whitehouse Common Primary School we believe that inclusion is a fundamental right for each and every child and this ethos is thoroughly embedded in our school aims and visions. All staff take ownership of inclusive practice across the school and are supported by a strong enthusiastic team of specialists. Through the continual rigorous review and development of our policies and procedures we are confident in the holistic approach to inclusion that all staff uses as embedded practice. Our guideline of quantitative data shows that all groups of children achieve well.
