At Bursted Wood, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school for all pupils. All staff have high expectations of the outcomes for all pupils; this is reflected through our School Values, Ethos and Teaching and Learning Policy.
We currently hold the Inclusion Quality Mark (2019-2022) and are proud to have been assessed as having met the standards to be a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion under this scheme (most recent accreditation September 2020).
We also hold the British Dyslexia Association’s Dyslexia Friendly Schools Quality Mark (2019-2022).
The Key members of staff responsible for inclusion and SEND are:
Mrs Gemma Smith Inclusion Manager / SENCo
Mrs Lesley Harborne Interim Director of Safeguarding, Inclusion, Pastoral and Welfare
