We believe that all children should be equally valued at our School. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to
develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe. We have a rage of agreed policies.
Dukes and Duchesses of Cambridge Academy is committed to inclusion and part of the School’s strategic planning involves
developing cultures, policies and practices that include all learners. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to
offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. This does not mean that we will treat all learners
in the same way, but that we will respond to learners in ways that take in to account their varied life experiences and needs.
We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, demographic group,
ethnicity, additional need, attainment and background. We pay particular attention to the provision for and the achievement of different
groups of learners:
- Pupils from families that are entitled to Pupil Premium;
- Pupils who arrive who are performing below national expectations in any area;
- Boys or Girls;
- Pupils from minority faiths, ethnicities, travellers, asylum seekers, refugees;
- Pupils who have English as an additional language (EAL);
- Pupils who have Special Educational Needs or a Disability (SEND);
- Pupils who are Gifted and Talented (G&T);
- Pupils who are Looked After Children (LAC);
- Young carers
