Inclusion

Welcome to Evelyn Grace Academy’s Inclusion

Inclusion at Evelyn Grace Academy plays a pivotal role in shaping students lives.

Bespoke interventions help give students opportunities and the tools to succeed and become leaders of tomorrow in every walk of life.

Inclusion is a network of support for all students, parents/carers and staff within the Academy. Inclusion enables effective teaching and learning to take place by promoting academic achievement, positive behaviour for learning and students’ emotional and physical wellbeing.

Inclusion aims to identify and meet every student’s needs and equip them with the necessary skill and aptitudes to become successful independent learners. Preparing and guiding them for future career paths so they can contribute positively to their communities and make a difference.

Our core purpose is to provide a safe, secure, nurturing and personalised learning environment where all students can thrive and achieve their full potential.

The Lambeth Local Offer can be found here.

Nurture group

The Nurture Group is a KS3 intervention programme to provide support for students whose current levels in English and Maths fall below target levels, have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, are at risk of exclusion and whose needs can no longer be met just through classroom differentiation and whole school interventions.

The Nurture Group aims to provide students with holistic learning programmes within a nurturing and safe learning environment. These are designed to enable students to make rapid progress towards meeting their targeted levels in English and Maths; as well as equip them with the necessary skills they need to be able to become successfully included back into the school community and its rigorous routines and expectations in line with our high expectations.
