At Kings Hill School we pride ourselves on being an inclusive environment; welcoming children with a range of needs and disabilities. We strive to ensure our classrooms cater for all need types through outstanding teaching and informed methods that enable all children to succeed academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
In order to ensure our everyday classroom practice is as inclusive as possible we welcome suggestions and recommendations from outside agencies, with whom we work closely. These include Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Specialist Teacher, Physiotherapists and Paediatricians. We believe a collaborative multi-agency approach is best to support children and always liaise with parents and pupils (where appropriate) to ensure the voice of all stakeholders is heard. At Kings Hill School we believe everyone plays a part in a child’s development and work tirelessly alongside parents, children and other agencies to make sure we do everything we can to remove barriers to learning and enable every child to reach their full potential.

Inclusion Centre of Excellence
This term we have undergone a re-assessment for the Inclusion Quality Mark, which we were delighted to be awarded three years ago. Our staff, pupils, parents and governors all took part in the two day assessment to celebrate the inclusive ethos of our school. Ofsted defines an educationally inclusive school as one in which the teaching and learning; achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter, which puts it at the forefront of everything we do and is echoed through our values and motto.
Our assessor commented that provision for our vulnerable pupils was ‘exemplary’ and that ‘all pupils are valued no matter what their ability or disability. She said ‘Inclusion permeates every aspect of the school and reaches every corner and every aspect of their work.’
As a result of the whole school assessment, we have not only been given the Inclusion Quality Mark, but we have been recognised as a ‘Centre of Excellence’, an award only given in exceptional circumstances. Only 200 schools across the country have been given the ‘Centre of Excellence’ title and we are proud and honoured to be recognised in such a way.
Our thanks go to all staff, governors and parents who supported the school throughout the two day assessment. Our pupils were, as always, a credit to the school and we are delighted that our inclusive practice has achieved such a high accolade.
