What then are barriers? Barriers could be found in the way schools are organised and resourced, their cultures and policies, the approaches to teaching and learning, accessibility of the buildings and the ways in which their students interact daily at school.
The life of a student is power packed, unpredictable and does not always goes accordingly to plan. These changes can occur unexpectedly – Covid-19, family changes, accidents, a new sibling, exam stress… These factors can in many ways hinder a student’s learning. Inclusion therefore is not a suggestion but in fact a necessity.
Our school believes in inclusion and through its Learning Support Department works towards responding to the learning needs of all our students and ensuring that all students, parents/caregivers, staff and non-teaching staff voices are heard.
