Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Inclusion is an integral part of Longfield Primary School's ethos.  Meeting the needs of all our pupils is a priority.  We have a holistic approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and English as an Additional Language (EAL).  We are committed to ensuring that everything we do in our school reflects our inclusive ethos and benefits all our learners.

We work closely with outside agencies and families of children with additional needs to ensure that the children are well supported and make good progress

The 5R's

To promote core values and create independent, confident adults who are able to make a positive contribution to society we use the 5R's.

·  Responsible

·  Resourceful

·  Resilient

·  Reflective

·  Reasoning

This is integral to the ethos of the school.  We believe that these skills are fundamental in shaping our children to become confident individuals and responsible citizens who are focused on lifelong learning.
