Inclusion of children within Fairways Primary School that have Learning difficulties and / or Disabilities.


Fairways is recognised as a school where all pupils, irrespective of their academic ability or disability, are supported to reach their full potential. 


If a pupil has a medical condition, or learning difficulty, staff within the school will liaise with the parents and other professionals throughout their time in the school. All staff aim to find out as much as they can about the pupil so that the right support is given, at the best time, to enable the pupil to access as much of the curriculum and extra activities as possible. Staff aim to make the children as independent as possible.


We know that when a pupil first starts a new school, there is often a readjustment period, when behaviour and performance may not reflect a pupil’s true ability. We are careful not to make any judgements until a pupil is fully settled into the new environment.


Every pupil is welcome and valued.
