Inclusion

The Inclusion Centre is situated in the East wing of Hodge Hill College and supports young people who may require additional guidance and instruction during their school years. The focus of the Inclusion Faculty is to offer a holistic approach in order to address and support the needs of the young people through a range of customized workshops and interventions.

Our school motto ‘CARE’ (Courtesy, Aspirations, Respect and Empathy) represents the college’s philosophy that we believe pupils who treat each other with respect, respect cultural diversity, aspire to reach their personal best will learn to live together in harmony whilst becoming upstanding, successful citizens. As a college, we are committed to providing equal opportunities for all our pupils through the delivery of appropriate high quality education whilst providing flexible systems to support the educational needs of all pupils from the local community.

All workshops/interventions are provided on a withdrawal basis for 2 to 6 weeks duration. In some instances, the intervention programmes may be ongoing due to the greater needs of the young people in our care. In addition, there is in class support via the Inclusion Assistants Team for the young people requiring support with their academic learning. As part of the Inclusion agenda, the Inclusion team also delivers training to young people to develop leadership skills and become ambassadors for Hodge Hill College.  .

The Inclusion Centre works in collaboration with the Pastoral, Faculty and Leadership Teams to ensure that the individual needs of all our young people attending Hodge Hill College are met and that they are well supported to become independent and successful learners who achieve academic success.

To promote inclusive practices, there are a range of programmes and interventions which are regularly customised, reviewed and delivered via the Inclusion Faculty which primarily focuses on supporting subject faculties in raising the academic performance of all our young people.
