SEND & InclusionBack to key information list
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 November 2019 Bannockburn retained the Inclusion Quality Mark 'Flagship Status'. 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, organisation 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.’

Well-Being and Mental Health
Bannockburn Primary School is committed to supporting the wellbeing and mental health of our whole school community (pupils, staff, volunteers, parent/carers and the wider community).
The World Health Organisation defines good mental health as: “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community."
We want the very best for our pupils and everyone in our community. We will do whatever we can to help them reach their potential and be fully functioning, positive members of society.
Well-Being Vision Statement:
- Everyone feels safe, included and valued.
- Promote positive social and emotional wellbeing, mental health, resilience and wellness for pupils, staff and our community.
- Everyone believes in themselves, creating relationships that develop them personally, socially and emotionally.
This year we have been expanding our understanding of Wellbeing and Mental Health further, by participating in the following events:
- World Mental Health Day ‘Mental Health in schools: Make it count.’
- Children’s Mental Health Week ‘Being healthy- inside and out.’
- International Day of Happiness. Thinking about what makes us happy and what we can do to help others feel happy.
We are also encouraging families, staff and others we work with to consider six aspects of improving our wellbeing.
Body. Mind. Spirit. People. Place. Planet.
