The principles of Inclusion at Newton Farm

We believe that all children are equal and deserve the best education possible. Because of this, we work hard to make sure that no child is left out of lessons, activities or other school experience, regardless of any barriers that they may have to hinder their participation. The IQM has allowed us to develop our practices at Newton Farm to become even more inclusive and ensure that no child is left behind.


What is Inclusion?

Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background.  It pays particular attention to the provision made for, and the achievement of, different groups of pupils within a school.  An educationally inclusive school is one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matters.  Effective schools are educationally inclusive schools.  This shows, not only in their performance, but also in their ethos and their willingness to offer new opportunities to pupils who may have experienced previous difficulties.  This does not mean treating all pupils in the same way.  Rather it involves taking account of pupils’ varied life experiences and needs.

“Evaluating Educational Inclusion” OfSTED 2000



Through a robust Anti-Bullying Policy, which was created with the full cooperation and input of all our school community stakeholders, we have been able to implement its entire principles in the detection, education and prevention of all forms of bullying. 

Our staff, pupils and parents are all very well informed on the steps to take to identify bullying incidents and the measures that need to be taken in order to address this very rare occurrence amongst our pupils and staff.

We continue to hone our knowledge and practices in the prevention and in dealing with all forms of bullying as a day-to-day practice, as well as celebrating respect of our shared diversified cultural and ethnic backgrounds.


Newton Farm School achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark in 2021 and became Mental Health Champions in 2022
