Year 11 GCSE Wellbeing Support Event
At Nicholas Chamberlaine we welcome everybody from our local community. We believe that our own school community should provide every child with the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We hope you will enjoy reading about the variety of ways in which Nicholas Chamberlaine is able to support SEND students to reach their full potential.
We have worked closely with Warwickshire Local authority and their partners to develop the groundbreaking Warwickshire Inclusion Charter, which has been recognised at a national level including by the Chartered College of Teaching.
This charter reinforces the pledge to inclusion and the county’s commitment to providing an inclusive education for all children and young people.
The Inclusion Charter has been created to set out a shared vision for schools across the county using the four cornerstones of:
- ‘Welcome and Care’, understanding that every child is an individual;
- ‘Value and include’ remembering that inclusion is everyone’s responsibility;
- ‘Work in Partnership’, working together to recognise need and support families on their journey.
This will support schools and families to consider and develop how they can work together to improve the experience of all children and staff in schools and demonstrate to others how they are doing this.
Nicholas Chamberlaine is a busy mainstream school. It is however, important for us to recognise that we are limited in terms of resource and expertise in comparison to some specialist settings.
We are committed to narrowing the attainment gap between SEND and non-SEND students. This may include after school interventions, short-term intervention learning programmes in our Hub facility or other learning interventions developed on an individual needs basis.
We have high expectations of all students and we are committed to ensuring that all our students have excellent attendance. Students want to come to school to experience our high quality learning environment. We strongly believe that students should make the most of their time at school, not just academically, but also through becoming more aware of spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues.
Hannah Roberts is our appointed SENDCo, who is very approachable and happy to meet with parents to discuss any concerns or questions that you may have. To speak with Ms Roberts please contact the school office, details can be found on our contact page.
