Mrs Benson is the person responsible for Inclusion at our school   


At The Cathedral Catholic Primary School, we are committed to inclusion and equal oportunities. We work closely with parents and other agencies in order to ensure that all pupils are able to successfully access the curriculum. 

Our school population includes a wide range of different community groups and we are dedicated to ensuring that our school is a place where everyone feels welcome and where all upils can learn. Our consistently high expectations and inclusive teaching practices ensure that The Cathedral School is a place where children can achiee their best.

Our pupils have a range of different abilities and interests, beliefs and aspirations. Many of our pupils also speak other languages and are learning to speak English. At The Cathedral, we want all of our pupils to succeed and throoughly enjoy their education. The staff at The Cathedral are experienced in teaching pupils with a wide range of abilities and are trained to use a variety of different techniques and intervention programmes to ensure all children can access the curriculum fully. 

We welcome the involvement of parents and carers in decision making and we want to work closely with them so that our pupils can always give nothing but the best!
