Inclusion Policy

1 Introduction

1.1 At Primary PPA Cover Ltd we value the individuality of all of the children we teach. We are committed to giving all children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We do this by taking account of children’s’ varied life experiences and needs. We offer a broad range of activities and have high expectations for all children. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter. This policy helps to ensure that Primary PPA Cover Ltd promotes the individuality of all our children, irrespective of ethnicity, attainment, age, disability, gender or background.

2 Aims and objectives

2.1 Primary PPA Cover Ltd aims to be an inclusive PPA Provider. We actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude individual children, or groups of children. This means that equality of opportunity must be a reality for children who attend our clubs. We make this a reality through the attention we pay to the different groups of children who may be present during our lessons:

  • girls and boys;
  • minority ethnic and faith groups;
  • children who need support to learn English as an additional language;
  • children who do not speak Spanish or English;
  • children with special educational needs;
  • able, gifted and talented children;
  • children who are at risk of disaffection or exclusion;
  • travelers;
  • asylum seekers;

2.2 We offer a wide range of activities which meet the specific needs of individuals and groups of children. We meet these needs through:

  • setting suitable learning challenges;
  • responding to children’s diverse learning needs;
  • overcoming potential barriers to learning or participation of individuals and groups of children

2.3 We achieve educational inclusion by continually reviewing what we do, through asking ourselves these key questions:

  • Are all children happy during our lessons?
  • What are we doing for those children who we know are not achieving their best?
  • Are our actions effective?
  • Are we successful in promoting racial harmony and preparing children to live in a diverse society?

3 Teaching and learning style

3.1 We aim to give all children the opportunity to succeed and reach the highest level of personal achievement. When our specialists plan their lessons, they take into account that the abilities of the children may vary.

3.2 Our staff are familiar with the equal opportunities legislation covering race, gender and disability which is outlined in our equal opportunities policy.

3.4 Our staff ensure that all children:

  • Feel secure and know that their contributions are valued;
  • Appreciate and value the differences they see in others;
  • Take responsibility for their own actions;
  • Participate safely in clothing that is appropriate to their religious beliefs
  • Use materials that reflect a range of social and cultural backgrounds
  • Participate fully, regardless of disabilities or medical needs.

4. Children with disabilities or special educational needs

4.1 Some children present in our lessons have disabilities and/or special educational needs. We are committed to meeting the needs of these children, as we are to meeting the needs of all groups of children who attend. All reasonable steps are taken to ensure that these children are not placed at any kind of disadvantage compared to non-disabled children.

4.2 Staff modify teaching and learning expectations as appropriate for children with disabilities and/or additional needs. For example, they may give additional time to complete certain activities, or they may modify materials used in the session. In their planning, staff ensure that they give children with disabilities/additional needs the opportunity to develop their skills in all activities provided.

5 Inclusion and racism

5.1 The diversity of our society is addressed through our lessons. We welcome children from all social and ethnic backgrounds. Our teachers are flexible in their planning and offer appropriate challenges to all pupils, regardless of ethnic or social background. All racist incidents are recorded and reported to a senior member of staff (for more information regarding this please see our Equal Opportunities policy).

6 Summary

6.1 At Primary PPA Cover Ltd, we value each child as a unique individual. We will strive to meet the needs of all children who are present during our lessons and seek to ensure that we meet all statutory requirements related to matters of inclusion.

7 Monitoring and review

7.1 This policy is monitored by management and will be reviewed annually. Last reviewed 5.12.17

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a quick ‘Hello’ to share some of the beautiful Christmas themed work the children in our Primary schools have done during their Art PPA cover lessons and French or Spanish PPA cover lessons with our super Specialists!

I officially finish for the Christmas Holidays today and as much as I am excited about my lie in on Monday I’m sad that I won’t get to see all of the other photos we receive of the beautiful Christmas work happening in our schools next week!

To share with you just why our Specialists really are the best PPA cover Specialists in the world…have a browse through some of the photographs below from a variety of our Primary schools across the country!

 

 

 

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all schools that entered our Company Christmas Card Competition – the competition was higher than ever and the elves here at Primary PPA Cover HQ really struggle to pick and overall winner! Congratulations to the super talented pupils at Hullavington Primary School and Caroline Hudson; their very lovely art PPA cover Specialist, of whom are the winners! The pupils created very intricate mosaic style depictions of the 12 Days of Christmas using snippets of coloured paper, card and other textured materials…I am sure you’ll agree that they have done a super job and we’re all very proud of them here at Primary PPA Cover HQ!

 

Get a load of Finlay’s winning Christmas card design for our sister Company, ClubsComplete! Finlay is from Griffydam Primary school and is just 5 years old…you would never have guessed with how professional his design is (check out that beard!!). Well done Finlay, you have done an expert job and we can’t wait for our other ClubsComplete schools to receive this in the post next week! www.clubscomplete.co.uk 

Right, I’m off to join my team for a Friday Afternoon Tea at one of our local restaurants…yet another reason why Primary PPA Cover is one of the best places to work…ever!

Merry Christmas everyone, make sure you eat lots of chocolates, give lots of presents but most of all chill out and have fun!

Wow! What a busy start to the term we’ve had!

One of my favourite things about working for Primary PPA Cover has to be the Autumn Term and how many new schools we welcome to the Primary PPA Family! This year has been no exception and we thoroughly look forward to supporting the team and pupils in each and every school we have the pleasure of working in.

This term has whizzed by so quickly that I can hardly believe I’m sitting her during the half term holiday having just sent our menu requests off for the Christmas party!! In all the excitement, I’m yet to share some of the fantastic work and progress our super Specialists and pupils have produced this term, so in celebration of European Languages Day I am pleased to share work from St Andrews South Gate Primary School in Enfield and Hullavington CofE Primary School in Gloucestershire!

Do you know why we learn French? Well done to the children at Hullavington!

Get a load of those eyelashes!! Excellent work from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Muy bien! Super Spanish writing skills from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Another success we have celebrated this term is that our Directors; Kerry and Stacey Barsby, have been shortlisted as finalists for the national NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards – how exciting! Both Kerry and Stacey had the pleasure of meeting all of the other entrants on 3rd October at the Awards Celebration Evening in Birmingham and they certainly had a brilliant time! Their hard work and determination is just one of the many reasons we have become England’s Best PPA Recruiter and why I am so proud to work for such a progressive and future forward Company. Muy bien Kerry and Stacey!

So, who loves cake? Thought so. We do too and even better we love teaching children how to bake and create the most delicious cakes and sweet treats through our Bake Off style clubs! If you’re fed up of ‘Soggy Bottoms’ or dream that your pupils will one day produce an ‘even bake’ Paul Hollywood would be proud of then have no fear, our sister Company ClubsComplete are here! This term enquires for our Bake Off Club have been hot out the oven and we are so pleased to inspire children on a National basis to taste, experiment and explore cooking and baking following a Bake Off Style format, whilst at the same time, supporting your current Food Provision to meet Ofsted’s standards as part of the new Common Inspection Framework. Piece of cake! www.clubscomplete.co.uk

The showstopper created by the Star Bakers from Long Whatton Primary School’s Bake Off Club! Yummy!

In celebration this term also were several of our super clever schools and children that made it on to the Championship Leader Board in the Vocab Express International competition! Every year, several of our schools that we support with MFL PPA cover enter the online competition and this year Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Coventry came 2nd in the world with a further two of our schools making it into the top 20! What an incredible achievement!! One of the many reasons we are so proud to be England’s best PPA Cover providers for Nurseries and Primary Schools!
