Rosetta is committed to inclusive practice and share the belief that all children should be given access to mainstream schools, 'unless there are compelling reasons for doing otherwise.' UNESCO 1994
We welcome all children regardless of any difficulties they may have and recognise the importance of working closely with parents, carers and other consultant professionals in order to ensure that parents, carers and children feel they are successfully included within the school.
Inclusion is seen to involve the identification and minimising of barriers to learning and participation, and the maximising of resources to support learning participation.
Index for Inclusion - Booth and Ainscow 2000
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 Rosetta is seen as the responsibility of the whole school community, permeating all aspects of school life and applicable to all our pupils.
If you have any concerns about your child's learning then please go and see their class teacher. If you have any further questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to come and see our SENCO - Ms Lorrain Smee, who is acting SENCO whilst Mrs. Van Rooyen is on Maternity Leave.
