At the Trumpington Federation we recognise that children will only learn and meet their potential if they feel safe and happy. We recognise the importance of working in partnership with home and school in order to ensure that every child’s needs are met to support them to meet their full potential. We have a dedicated inclusion team who open an open door policy and strive to ensure that we are able to meet and communicate with all parents as regularly as possible.
We understand that parenting is a hard job and, at times, there can be barriers to meeting a child’s needs such as housing, finances, bereavement etc. Our inclusion team are able to provide advice, support and guidance to access other services. The work they will carry out is varied and individualised to the particular situations that you and your family may be facing.
Kate Barham is the Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for Inclusion. Her team includes Rachael Tomlin, Sonja Waldman, Sue Arkle, Lisa Ovenden and Fiona Baird.
