Home Inclusion

_rl36815Ofsted defines an educationally inclusive school as "one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matters".

Gaining a Quality Mark in inclusion does not depend on the school’s attainment in their exam results but instead focuses upon learning and achievement in its widest sense and looks at how schools see differences as opportunities for learning.

Inclusion provision at this school was judged to be outstanding in the 2008 Ofsted inspection.  All our inclusion provisions aim to keep the members of our school's community in SHAPE (Safe, Healthy, Achieve, Positive contribution & Economic Well-being)

We are fully comitted to the principles of 'Every Child Matters'.  The five outcomes of 'Every Child Matters' are central to everything that is done at Conisborough College.  We are dedicated to safeguarding the students and promoting their welfare at all times.  We aim to provide an environment where they can:

  1. Be healthy
  2. Stay safe
  3. Enjoy and achieve
  4. Make a positive contribution
  5. Achieve economic well-being

To ensure outcomes are met, Conisborough College has access to a wide range of professional agencies to support the students at various stages during their school career.  The agencies might be:

  • Educational Psychologist
  • CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service)
  • Social Services
  • School Nurse
  • Educational Welfare Services

We also try to build a close relationship between home and school to ensure information is shared and to solve any problems that might occur as quickly as possible.  Parents are always encouraged to contact the school if they feel there is a problem they would like to discuss with staff.  The Form Tutors, Achievement Leaders and Senior Management Team are always happy to discuss any issues a parent might have.

Mr J Cavadino - Is our school's designated officer for Child Protection (CP) and Looked After Children (LAC) and should be contacted if there are any problems in this area. There may be occasions when staff are concerned about a child's welfare and feel it necessary to make a referral to Social Services for help and support for that child. At all times the health, safety and well-being of that child remains paramount.

As an Inclusion Team we aim to always have: 

  • updated and secure knowledge of the students
  • provision to match the students’ needs
  • a robust monitoring and evaluating system in place to assess the quality and impact of the provision on attainment

Student Support

Our Student Support department have a range of provisions for students with Educational Needs (AEN) to enable tham to overcome their barriers to learning.  These include: Specialist Teaching Assistants for each area of AEN, Nurture group to ensure smooth tranistion from primary to secondary school; a Resource Base (local authority resource base); an additional curriculum programme offering personalised learning for those students who find mainstream lessons difficult.  The department also runs several programmes for students who need support with literacy.


We offer counselling on a referral basis to students who require emotional support. 'One in Four' counsellors are available four days per week.

We promote an ethos where everyone has a right to be respected and where differences are seen as learning opportunities.  Our students and parents are given a voice through our student council and our PTA.  We have a clear, well publicised policy on bullying and cyberbullying.  Our intensive intervention programme includes counsellors and external agencies such as School/Home Support and Young Carers Lewisham, working with our students and their families.

Our drive towards a fully inclusive school is successful because we have robust monitoring and evaluating systems in place to assess the quality and impact of the provisions on student attainment.
