Statement of Inclusion


‘Together in Faith we Aspire to Achieve Excellence’

At St Sebastian’s Church of England Primary School, as per our vision statement, as an inclusive Christian community with hope for all, we work towards opening minds, widening horizons and unlocking potential. Through challenge and support, we aspire to achieve excellence by creating a safe, nurturing learning environment where everyone is empowered with the skills, knowledge and wisdom to flourish and succeed.

 We work hard to ensure that every member of our school community – pupils, parents, staff and visitors – feel safe and included. We are an inclusive church school and every child, whatever their individual abilities or needs, is equally valued and welcome here. We focus wholly on the positive well-being and progress of every child. All children share a common entitlement to a broad and balanced curriculum which meets their social and learning needs.

We recognise, respect, and value difference and fully understand that diversity is a strength. We take account of differences and strive to remove barriers to learning and disadvantages which people may face in relation to disability, ethnicity, gender, religion, belief or faith, and sexual orientation. We believe that diversity is a strength that should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach, and visit the school.

We want all members of our school community to feel a sense of belonging within the school and wider community family and to know that they are respected and able to participate fully in school life.


We are committed to giving all of our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards.
