At Maypole Primary School we value and celebrate every individual; inclusion is central to our ethos and to the culture of the entire school community.
We aim to achieve educational inclusion by……

We are passionate about meeting the needs of all our pupils whether these are academic, social or emotional and all children have equal access and opportunity to participate in every aspect of school life. Every one of our pupils is given the support they need in order to reach their full potential.
