Inclusion (Ages 4-18)

At Roundhay School, we believe it is essential to provide a well-balanced, challenging curriculum for all pupils. It is important that we help all children to achieve their full potential, regardless of any barriers to learning. Our aim is to provide all children with the best possible outcome in preparation for life-long learning. We believe it is imperative that children acquire skills, knowledge and confidence that can be applied to all future learning experiences, including social, physical and spiritual development.

In order to accomplish this, children need to feel valued, listened to and respected. We ensure they have equal access to high quality provision, and support their learning, whatever educational need they may have.

We are passionate about developing confidence, self-belief and a growth mind-set in all our children. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter.

We are proud of our diversity and work relentlessly to ensure that all of our children are happy, safe and well supported in school. At the heart of our work is to build and sustain great relationships with pupils and adults in school and embed a culture of tolerance, respect and understanding so that all pupils are able to be the best versions of themselves.

What do our parents say?

‘Communication with the school is a real pleasure. Understanding of my child’s needs and quick responses to concerns are huge strengths of the inclusion team.’ ‘There is a strong feeling that the student’s wellbeing is at the centre of everything that you do.’ ‘I feel there is an open door policy and I can email/ pick up the phone at any point. Hats off to you guys, you’re doing a sterling job!!!’ ‘We are very impressed with the wonderful provision that our child benefits from at Roundhay School – it is obvious that his wellbeing is central to all that you do and we are very grateful that he is lucky enough to benefit from your care and support.’
