“Our inclusion policy is designed to ensure that we cater for all abilities, and that children will always be treated as individuals.

“Receiving the IQM will not change us as a school as inclusion is so embedded in our ethos and is an integral part of school life.

“However, being awarded the IQM is recognition of this fact and provides an accreditation for all the pupils and staff, highlighting what makes Homerswood so special.”
