Inclusion and Learning Support
Liverpool College is committed to an educationally inclusive education in which the teaching and learning, the achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter.
Inclusion at Liverpool College promotes equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. It pays particular attention to the provision made for, and the achievement of, different groups of pupils within a school and any pupils who are at risk of disaffection and exclusion.
Our objectives within a college culture of inclusion which is promoted and developed as an essential mission of the college are:
- To ensure that the special needs identification, assessment and provision is the responsibility of all members of staff at Liverpool College
- To ensure that SEN students move from dependency to independence
- To develop a positive approach to special needs which recognises and builds on students’ strengths
- To ensure that systems are in place to monitor the individual learning needs of all students and meet their needs accordingly
- To encourage students to monitor and take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour
- To narrow the differences in progress and outcomes between groups of pupils
- Delivering outstanding SEND practice in the classroom based on clear pupil profiles and learning plans, regularly monitored and evaluated, which allows pupils with SEND needs to make the same progress or better than other groups
- Assessing, managing the behaviour of disaffected and disengaged pupils and groups of so that every pupil makes good progress and engages with school
- Effective Safeguarding and protection of vulnerable pupils
- Effective pupil and family support and support directed to pupils and families who are not accessing the curriculum of the school, and are not making progress and may not be attending regularly
- High attendance, particularly in vulnerable, disadvantaged pupil groups
- Effective partnerships with external agencies which drive improvement engagement, progress, attendance and outcomes for disadvantaged, disaffected, and vulnerable pupils and families.
Policy and practice to meet these objectives are determined by the Liverpool College Inclusion Team led by our Assistant Principal, Inclusion and Safeguarding, Mrs K Duffy.
