Inclusion is about treating every person as an individual and seeking to meet their individual needs.  These needs may be related to their age, gender, sexuality, physical or mental ability, culture, or religion.  The Lodge strives to meet the diverse and various needs of all children by aiming to remove physical and social barriers to their participation.  We aim to promote and support the inclusion of all children.


The club has a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) who manages the provision for children with special educational needs or physical disabilities.
