Eastlands Primary School in Rugby is the latest school to have been recognised for its support for children with special needs and disabilities.

The school has recently been awarded the Warwickshire Inclusion Kite-marking Scheme Award (WincKs), joining 59 Early Years settings in the Warwickshire county who have also gained this achievement.

Nursery class teacher Amy Shipp said: "We are very proud to be recognised with this award, it demonstrates our excellent inclusive practice in supporting children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families.

"Due to the Covid lockdown we were unable to collect the award at a ceremony, however, our colleagues at IDS made us feel very special from a distance, presenting our framed award, delivering a congratulations balloon and a chocolate bundle!

"At Eastlands we are committed to ensuring that all children feel happy and safe whilst getting the best educational experience."
