We value the diversity of our community as a rich resource that can contribute to the learning of all pupils and staff. We aim to provide equality of educational opportunity for all by removing barriers to success for all pupils irrespective of age, ability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, language and social background. To remove these barriers we first and foremost ensure that all teaching and support staff have a good understanding of inclusive teaching practices within the classroom.


Identification and Provision

High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will meet the individual needs of the majority of children. Some children need educational provision that is additional to or different from this. This is special educational provision under Section 21 of the Children and Families Act 2014.


Where children are in need of additional support beyond that provided in the classroom there are a range of interventions that can extend or support pupils in many areas e.g. literacy, numeracy, social skills and speaking and listening. These are carefully monitored to ensure they are effective in helping children to progress in their learning. We keep a detailed whole school provision map which includes every child in the school and any provision, additional to and different from what they receive in the classroom on a daily basis.

Parents are central to the process of enabling pupils fulfil their potential. Parents of pupils with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) are encouraged to contribute to the target setting process for their children and have access to information that will help them to support their child at home.


At Epsom Primary School we are proud of our inclusive practice and what we can offer to all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Click here to read our school offer booklet which has been written for parents and carers of children with SEND.
