Stainton CE Primary School is a fully inclusive school and advocates the inclusive education policy of the Cumbria Local Authority.
Inclusion looks at the needs of all pupils and recognises their preferred learning styles. This includes children with severe, moderate and specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties, EAL (English as an Additional Language) pupils and pupils considered to be Gifted and Talented.

Our school policies ensure that teaching arrangements are fully inclusive. The majority of pupils will have their needs met through normal classroom arrangements and appropriate differentiation, which may include short-term support such as Additional Literacy Support (ALS), Early Literacy Support (ELS) and Social Use of Language Development (SULP). In addition, there are children with SEND who may require a special learning situation built into a target plan or an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which occasionally necessitates withdrawal for individual support, such as following a Reading Intervention programme or a phonics programme. Despite this, the ultimate aim is to maximise inclusion without adversely impacting on the provision of effective education for other children.
At Stainton CE Primary School we follow the Principles of Inclusion as laid down in the Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs 2014, and which is fully endorsed by Cumbria County Council Local Authority.
For more information regarding how children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are included and catered for within our school then please look at our SEND section on the website.
We work closely with our Inclusion Officer to ensure the best educational provision for all of our children.
Ensuring that all children have full access to the school environment and learning experiences is our key priority.
