Inclusion at Thornton

At Thornton we are passionate about developing the whole child: academically, socially and mentally. We believe in integrating and engaging all pupils within all aspects of the curriculum including extra-curricular activities by working closely with parents, staff and specialist support to provide inclusive education. 
 
Our Inclusion team includes our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) staff and Pastoral Team. Our team this year is led by Miss Shaheen, Inclusion Manager and Special Educational Needs Coordinator. Working within the team we also have Ms Devi and our new addition to the Pastoral Team, Miss Faruza Akhtar, our Pastoral Managers, Mrs Newcombe, our school nurse, Mr Bates, sports coordinator, Miss Wilcox, SEND teaching assistant and Lead Practitioner for Autism and Mr McAlinden, SEND teaching assistant. If you wish to speak with any of the team please contact the School office or catch us by the gate in the morning and after school.
