Inclusion at Kilnwood Vale Primary School
At Kilnwood Vale, our school strapline is Inspire, Nurture, Enable, which we live and breath every single day. We value every child and provide the conditions for each individual to thrive personally, socially, and academically.
Children join Kilnwood Vale with varied life experiences and needs. We offer an inclusive, coherent and ambitious curriculum that is carefully sequenced to support all children to build up the knowledge they need over time. By deliberately introducing curriculum content and skills in small steps, with lots of opportunities for repetition and rehearsal in different contexts, children secure the building blocks of learning that they need to understand more complex ideas and to undertake more complex tasks. This ‘small steps’ approach enables all children to remember more and is particularly supportive of children with SEND or who are new to English.
The very intent and core purpose of our curriculum is to empower all children. Oracy skills are crucial to success in school and in their life beyond. Research tells us that the impact of Oracy education can help pupils overcome barriers, increase confidence, and promote social equality. We are ambitious for our pupils and everything we do is centred around closing the gaps that exist, a disadvantaged starting point is not an excuse. The person who can speak clearly, express themselves effectively and portray passion and confidence, is the person who will get that job one day. This is our motivation!
