The Worcestershire Context and Objective
To ensure that every Traveller child has equal
access, with others, to his or her full legal entitlement to
education and other support services; to enable them to take this
opportunity to become participant adults in a democratic society;
to ensure that all providers and schools have access to knowledge
and understanding of Traveller Communities and culture.
To support the development of a culture of
acceptance in which all children can be valued equally, treated
with respect and provided with equal opportunities within education
and access to support services. It is concerned with developing
inclusive values, shared by all staff, pupils, governors,
parents/carers and communities that are conveyed to all new members
of the school. These principles underpin the development of
policies and practice through a continuous process of school
improvement and access to community services.
To encourage participation in a learning
community where all are welcome, their needs are met and personal
strengths are recognised. Inclusive practices are those which
effectively implement the inclusive culture and policies of the
school and community, so that full participation is encouraged from
all pupils in classroom and extra-curricular activities, drawing
upon their knowledge and experience outside the school.
