We adopt a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs and interests of all pupils and promotes high levels of achievement, good behaviour and successful progression to the next stages of learning.
Stranton Primary is a fully inclusive school and we are passionate in our drive to ensure all pupils achieve their potential in all areas of school life. In 2009 we achieved the Hartlepool Inclusion Standard with distinction. In 2017 we achieved Parent Partnership Award with Distinction.
Meeting the needs of pupils with special educational needs are the responsibility of all teachers and teaching staff and their needs are usually met through a differentiated curriculum. The SENCO will support staff to meet these needs. We operate a graduated response to supporting all pupils including those with additional learning needs, the initial response being through Quality First Teaching. Further detail is included in our SEND Policy.
