This role of Inclusion is to support the academic and social education of pupils in Key Stage 3 and 4 who are at risk of exclusion; are emotionally vulnerable, or struggle to manage in a large school environment. These pupils may require additional or specialist support to tackle underlying problems that are creating barriers to their learning.

Mr Baker oversees Inclusion and is supported by Mrs Bateman.
