Meet the Inclusion Team

Mrs K. Mulji: As an experienced teacher and qualified SENCo, my role is to oversee Elsley Primary School's Special Educational Needs provision. I have always wanted to work in a role that would enable me to support children with additional needs and their families. Being part of such an incredible inclusion team is allowing me to do just that and I really do love what I do. As an Inclusion Manager, I work closely with all staff, including the rest of the Senior Leadership Team, to ensure that our school has an inclusive ethos in which all children participate and make excellent progress.  I thoroughly enjoy finding ways to remove barriers to learning, ensuring that every child makes progress towards building more positive self esteem.

Mrs M. Davies: Before qualifying as a teacher I supported young people and children with a range of Special Educational Needs and I now enjoy bringing my previous knowledge and experience to my teaching at Elsley. I specialise in teaching music and have had training in delivering music lessons to a whole range of pupils. At Elsley I provide a number of one to one Musical Learning sessions to pupils with additional needs where I am able to use my musical skills to work on targets specific to each child whether its building confidence, turn taking or develop speech. I am passionate about tailoring the curriculum to the needs of the pupil and believe in a holistic view of the child. I hope that by being in the inclusion team I will be able to bring my ideas to help further the wonderful work we do at Elsley.

Mrs M. Cronin: As an experienced  teacher  I have had many opportunities to develop  my expertise. I have trained as a Reading Recovery Teacher and this sparked my interest in Dyslexia .I became interested in Speech and Language as a Nursery Teacher. I trained as an I can  licensee and have delivered  Speech, Language and communication training  at Elsley and in other schools. My role in Elsley is to support children with Speech ,Language and communication  difficulties. I enjoy working  closely with colleagues in the Inclusion Team  to ensure that all children can follow their own learning journey and reach their  potential in an inclusive environment. I like the challenge of  thinking  as a team of how to remove the barriers to learning and to have children's well- being at the forefront of our minds.

Ms I. Mitchell: I am the administrator responsible for attendance. I am passionate about attendance and would love everyone to achieve 100% attendance and therefore have the best chance to achieve their potential at school. I monitor the pupil’s attendance daily and contact parents immediately if there are any concerns or issues.

I really enjoy my job and enjoy supporting the parents and staff with any Attendance issues.

Ms A. Vasdev: My role at Elsley Primary School include being a class teacher and the ‘Behaviour for Learning’ lead. I feel very passionate towards providing pupils with an equal opportunity to achieve and I have become a member of the inclusion team as a result of this. As part of my practice, I always wish to nurture pupils and provide them with confidence to ensure they reach their full potential. ‚Äč

Ms M. Burrell: As an experienced teacher, I have always strived to make my teaching inclusive and accessible for all of the children in my care. Being on the inclusion team offers me the opportunity to further develop this skillset and play my part in ensuring inclusive practice is imbedded across the school. I have a specific interest in behaviour and working with children who show signs of social, emotional and mental health needs. This is where my passion lies. I truly love working with children who have suffered adverse childhood experiences and who subsequently find communicating their emotions challenging. I believe that helping these children to manage their feelings through a nurturing relationship will in turn result in them fulfilling their potential and realising that they too can make progress and be successful in their learning.

Ms A. Ahmed: As an experienced classroom practitioner with experience in both a Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 setting, I am incredibly excited to be part of the EAL inclusion team. I have always been very passionate about developing specific provision for children who have English as an additional language. Working within such a diverse school such as Elsley Primary has enabled me with many exciting opportunities to develop the language of bilingual pupils therefore making an important contribution to inclusion and equality. I believe integration of pupils with EAL should be integral and standard practice. This is because EAL students learn best in mainstream classrooms with access to a full curriculum. I look forward to contributing to the EAL inclusion team to ensure that all students experience an enjoyable learning and teaching experience here at Elsley Primary School.

Ms S. Kahn: As an experienced teacher, I have always been passionate about Inclusion. I have always loved working in a school where I can aid in celebrating the multi-culturalism and difference of its pupils and help the school thrive for excellence. I have always believed that pupils need to feel happy and safe for them to flourish. Thus, I have always aimed to create a classroom where pupils are not limited by their academic ability, faith and  background.  As an experienced teacher, I have always been passionate about Inclusion.

Ms R. Dahir: This is my first-year teaching, and it was really important to me that that I begin my career in education by involving myself in opportunities that encourage inclusion and support children with additional needs. I have a personal connection with special educational needs as I have a little brother who is diagnosed with autism. I enjoy researching and finding ways of not only supporting him but all children with additional needs to overcome any hurdles and achieve their full potential.

Mrs S. Jaffer: As a practitioner in various fields of education from Nursery Nurse to Senior Nursery Nurse, including volunteering in a special needs sector for a few months, I wanted to make a difference in young children's lives and so I joined Elsley Primary as a 1-1 teaching assistant. It gives me great privilege to be making a difference in children's lives and everyday when I go home, I am proud of the achievements and progress that the children have made. I believe everyone deserves the best and inclusion is very important for that, I love what I do and it gives me immense pleasure to be part of the inclusion team to be making a difference not only for my 1-1 but to the school at large.  I am proud and privileged to be part of the supportive, constructive and united team of inclusion within Elsley Primary School.
