“At Oldfield Brow, we believe that every child is exceptional” (School Vision, 2023)

In order for every child to aspire towards their limitless potential, our school will ensure that it creates a culture in which every child will learn and succeed in line with their peers. The school’s inclusive culture is based on these core principles:

  • Ensuring social justice for all learners by guaranteeing that every child has access to quality, progressive, curriculum delivered by skilled and knowledgeable teachers who can adapt provision to meet the individual needs of each learner for them to reach our high expectations for all learners.
  • Guaranteeing equity in opportunity for all learners to enable them to access the same curriculum and achieve the same as their peers.
  • Using timely and effective assessment to ensure the early identification of needs to ensure all learners can “keep up” and not have to “catch up” with their peers.
  • Creating a sense of belonging for all children by ensuring our school ethos values diversity in all forms, including neurodivergence, based on the principles of representation across our curriculum and the explicit teaching of the principles of the Equality Act 2010. All members of our school community feel that their individuality is accepted, understood and valued by all members of our school by ensuring that reasonable adjustments are made to accommodate personal needs within our framework of high expectations for all.

We will know that we have been successful in our vision when:

  • We have eliminated any attainment gap between different demographics of learners from a range of diverse backgrounds.
  • Our learners, and other members of our school community, confirm via stakeholder engagement, that they feel represented and valued within in a school where individuality is accepted and understood by all.
  • Our progressive and well-sequenced curriculum is taught via embedded inclusive quality first teaching techniques that eliminate the use of external academic support for learners to reach our high expectations.

Our vision for Inclusion at Oldfield Brow can be summarised by the following statement:

same intent (curriculum expectations) and adapted implementation (teaching)
