Equalities & Accessbility
Greenside Primary School aims to create a secure, accepting, collaborative and stimulating school community in which everyone is valued and all pupils can achieve their best. Inclusion permeates every aspect of school life to increase learning and participation for all pupils. Particular attention is paid to the provision made for different groups of pupils within school who may be vulnerable, for example because of their attainment, gender, ethnicity or background.
All pupils are entitled to a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum. This includes pupils who have SEN or disabilities and those for whom English is not their first language. By setting suitable learning challenges, responding to pupils’ diverse needs and overcoming potential barriers to learning and assessment for individuals and groups of pupils Greenside strives to ensure that all pupils learn and make good or better progress and access the full Greenside Primary School curriculum.
