At Kirkdale St Lawrence we are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum. We have high expectations of all our pupils and aim to accommodate the needs of every learner. We embrace the fact that every child is different and therefore the education needs of every child will vary. We have high expectations for our pupils and will work hard to ensure all children make progress in their academic, social and emotional development.

We believe that inclusion is successful when attitudes are welcoming, positive and empathetic, as well as when there is sufficient and appropriate support for the child, the parents and the school, ensuring a holistic approach throughout. Our priority is to ensure that every child with special educational needs has access to the right support and we  will strive to maintain links with parents, health, social care and education professionals.
