How will my child be included in activities and events outside the classroom e.g. school trips?

We want all the children at Monkton Park to have the same educational opportunities and to feel included as part of our school community.

Every effort is made by the whole staff to ensure that all children are integrated into all aspects of the school.

If your child has his or her own Teaching Assistant working 1:1 with him/her, then they will accompany your child on school trips. We may also increase adult to child ratios on trips where we feel the children in a particular class would benefit from more adult support.

We also have a School Council which consists of representatives from each class in the school from Year 1 upwards. The School Council is voted for their classmates and school staff ensure there is a broad range of abilities, strengths and personalities represented. Members of the school council also visit the younger classes to talk to them about whole school issues such as playground equipment and reward schemes.
