We are passionate about inclusion at Anthem. We understand that everyone has different starting points and work hard to make our schools places where all children and young people feel valued and receive the understanding and support they need to thrive.
Our Inclusion Lead is at the forefront of an ongoing programme of improvement in this important and complex area of teaching and learning. Together with SEND expert David Bartram OBE, Anthem's Inclusion Lead carries out whole-school SEND reviews to capture what’s going well and provide some suggested areas for improvement. Once an action plan is in place, schools receive follow-up visits and support to achieve their goals.
To complement the SEND reviews, we have set up a training programme for staff in inclusion roles. This training equips staff with the skills they need to put plans into action and, crucially, brings colleagues from different Anthem schools together, creating networks of peer support. Our annual SEND conference offers further opportunities for sharing ideas and collaboration.
