At Bannockburn we are committed to developing practices based upon the aim of creating an inclusive community within our school.  We create an ethos of achievement for all pupils within a climate of high expectation by;

  • valuing a broad range of talents, abilities and achievements;
  • promoting success and self-esteem by taking action to remove barriers to learning;
  • countering conscious and unconscious discrimination that may prevent individuals, or pupils from any particular groups, from thriving in our school; and
  • actively promoting understanding and a positive appreciation of the diversity of individuals
  • and groups within society (dfe, 2010)

In 2015 Bannockburn also achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark and was made a Centre of Excellence for inclusion. Our IQM reported stated Exceptional features of our school included ‘the very strong, collaborative leadership leading to excellent teamwork; the exceptional behaviour and positive learning attitudes of pupils; the excellent model of teaching and learning and differentiation in the classrooms; the excellent communication, organization and planning within the school, leading to consistency of practice across the school; the excellent use of resources to enable diverse needs to be thoroughly met and the excellent work of the Inclusion Team and their work with a variety of outside agencies and professionals.’
