In autumn 2013 the school gained the Camden Award for Inclusion, an award that recognised that,
“School leaders and managers demonstrate inclusive values and attitudes. Expectations for all children are high…inclusive values influence how the school plans for future improvement and how it runs day to day.”

Neassa Cooke – Occupational Therapist
The occupational therapy (OT) service for children and young people in Camden works with children, families and schools in Camden to promote health and wellbeing through engaging in meaningful activities and occupations to promote independence and participation in all areas of everyday life.
Occupation and participation for children and young people may include self-care (for example getting ready to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), being actively involved and productive at school (for example in the classroom with school work, playing and PE lessons), and leisure (for example playing with friends, socialising with friends, doing hobbies or sports).
