Special Educational Needs and Inclusion

Special Educational Needs and Inclusion 



At Victoria Park Primary School, we

are proud to be an inclusive school providing high quality, creative and challenging education within a secure, caring and happy environment, where every child experiences a sense of enjoyment and achieves their full potential.



Mission Statement


Our Mission statement is Living to Learn, Learning to Live, together we achieve. A child’s education is vitally important and we want the children in our school to get the best possible start. We are keen to develop happy, confident, independent children who will be life-long learners. We give children a wide and varied education which matches their individual ability.


Victoria Park Primary School is a primary school located on one site in East Belfast. It has emerged with a rich background from three excellent schools Mersey Street, Strand and Sydenham Infants Primary School and latterly children from Beechfield and Avoniel

(more recently closed local schools). It goes from strength to strength as the new Victoria Park. It has a culture of inclusion where all are welcome and equal opportunity is given to all.





Practical experience, leading to understanding and application is the basis for our teaching and learning. We encourage the children to develop as independent learners.

We recognise that at some stage many pupils may require additional support to develop their learning and reach their potential.  We recognise that these needs have to be met to the best of our ability and resources.


We will promote an ethos of whole school approach to SEN through raised awareness towards understanding and commitment of shared responsibility by all members of staff.


It is our aim that the special educational needs of these children are met within the classroom highlighting their abilities and potential and allowing access to a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunity to practice and consolidate the basics skills they will need in the future (N.A.S.E.N 2001)


Pupils with special educational needs should access learning opportunities in a way that meets their individual needs. Our Special Educational Needs Policy is designed to recognise their learning needs and make provision for meeting them, either within school or through the use of specialist support and advisory services.
