Our Inclusion Statement

At Sherwood Park we are ‘Learning for Life Together’. Therefore, inclusion is at the heart of everything we do and is visible to every member of our school community. We ensure that all pupils have equal access to a broad, balanced curriculum, delivered through quality first teaching, which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. We aim to identify barriers to learning as early as possible so that we can provide evidence-based interventions to support and overcome additional needs. Where necessary, external agencies provide us with further strategies to allow our children to make progress towards their desired learning and developmental outcomes. Together, we are passionate that our children to reach their full potential at every step of their learning journey at Sherwood Park. ​

Successful inclusion should:

  • Result in every pupil feeling safe, confident and happy at school.
  • See every pupil making the best progress of which they are able and enjoying their time at school - be that in lessons, during their play or lunchtimes or when involved in any of our extended school activities.
  • Promote every child's belief in themselves as a learner and valued member of our school community.

Successful inclusive provision at Sherwood Primary School is seen as the responsibility of the whole school community, permeating all aspects of school life and applicable to all our children.

At Sherwood Park we have an 8 place ASD provision which is currently full and will remain full from September 2024 onwards


Children assigned to our provision are mainstream classroom based and receive targeted interventions throughout pockets of the day within our Larch classroom. 

If you have any concerns about your child's learning then please see their class teacher.  If you have any further questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to come and see our SENCO, Lauren Irwin.
