At Churchfield, inclusion is the lifeblood of our school and we work tirelessly to ensure that every child can grow, achieve and shine.
We strive to ensure that every single child who is part of our school family has the absolute best, and we work tirelessly to remove any barriers and equip our children with the skills to shine. Inclusion is in our nature, and every single child brings something unique that makes our school what it is. We believe that support for families is equally as important, and offer a full suite of support for parents. We strongly believe and endeavour to achieve maximum inclusion for all. Inclusive education means we value each child as a unique individual and we establish inclusive values ensuring that there are high expectations for all, striving to enable our children to participate in the life and work of the school to the best of their abilities. Our children are naturally inclusive, and we ensure that all children have access to the full breadth of the curriculum and school life.

Equality Act 2010
At Churchfield we are aware that children may require minor adaptations and reasonable adjustments as described in the Equality Act 2010 in order to access the school environment.
