Inclusion

We are committed to high achievement for all, supporting pupils and families in ensuring the very best of opportunities are available to them.

At Foxfield we firmly believe that all children have an entitlement to be educated alongside their peers in their local community. As an inclusive community, we are deeply committed to removing the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual pupils, or groups of pupils. Equality of opportunity is a reality for all our children within school and our dedicated Inclusion team work relentlessly to ensure that all children have the right to a fulfilling learning experience, regardless of their social background, ethnicity, academic ability or health. This includes support to all our parents, through informal coffee mornings, workshops, courses and drop-in meetings, as we understand the vital role our families play in the well-being and development of their children and the importance of working together as a team.

At Foxfield, our Inclusion team comprises of Wendy Lutrell (SENCo), Rita Garcha (Designated Person for Child Protection and Looked After Children), Sarah Beever (Lead Practitioner for Behaviour), Corrina Oliver (Lead Behavioural Professional), Wendy Rifat (Learning Mentor), Shanice Jones (Learning Mentor), Gaynor Horsfield (Home School Liaison Support Worker & Attendance Officer) and Louise Sexton (DSP Lead Teacher).

We also have an SEN Assistant, Sarah Taylor, who support with administrative duties and run intervention groups across the school, as well as a part-time Take 15 counsellor (Jen Woodward), a part-time Speech and Language TA (Jakki Cast) and a lead First Aid TA (Anna Monaco) who supports children with medical needs.

This team ensures that children receive personalised interventions and pastoral care, whether it be for their social and emotional needs, special educational needs, disabilities, behaviour, mental health or medical needs. We support teachers and parents to identify and meet the needs of every child, providing opportunities for real-life learning and working with other agencies to ensure the best possible provision for our vulnerable pupils.
