Normanton Altofts Junior School

SEND and Inclusion Introduction

In our school we are committed to enabling each child to achieve his or her full potential regardless of race, creed, gender or ability. We are an inclusive school that strives to make equality of opportunity a reality for  our children.

We have high expectations of all our children. We aim to achieve this through the removal of barriers to learning and participation. We want all our children to feel that they are a valued part of our school community.
