  • Consistently develop and deliver good practice standards for children and young people with SC/AS, through a whole school approach.

  • Work with families and others (eg. support agencies) to support individuals with SC/AS.

  • Sustain and develop practice to renew their AIM4 inclusion mark every three years.


Why is it important ?
