Inclusion is a process that maximizes the entitlement of all pupils to a broad, relevant and stimulating curriculum, which is delivered in an environment that will have the greatest impact on their learning. Internal Inclusion Pupils across school are given regular opportunities to work and play alongside pupils from different classes, age phases and pathways. This may include playtimes, assemblies, cultural celebrations, lunchtime clubs and Golden time sessions. External Inclusion Red Gates and Gilbert Scott schools physically join at the dining hall, so staff and pupils see each other daily, giving natural opportunities for developing an awareness and understanding about Red Gates pupils. Each class at Red Gates has a link class at Gilbert Scott or Courtwood Primary. Regular activities are planned for each class with pupils from a mainstream school. Inclusion practice is based around shared aims: All children to develop communication skills All children to develop citizenship, personal and social skills Mainstream children to develop a basic understanding about Red Gates children To increase levels of interactions between Red Gates and mainstream children Overall our intention is to create an inclusive culture within the community and provide pupils with effective experiences both in and out of the classroom. Inclusion in education is one aspect of inclusion in society.
