Welcome to Include Primary School - foreword from the Headteacher

Alan Waldron

Welcome to Include Suffolk


 Include Primary School - Suffolk is an Ofsted registered independent primary school. We provide full-time, alternative education for young people, most of whom have social, emotional and/or mental health needs (SEMH) or autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs).

We are registered with the Dept for Education for 75 places at Key Stage 1 and 2, across three sites at Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft. Pupils attend our school for assessment, social nurture and academic intervention, before being supported back into appropriate mainstream or specialist schooling.


"I am extremely proud of the progress pupils make within our school socially, as well as academically. Pupils come to our school presenting with multiple barriers to learning and generally this manifests as pupils who display a lack self-esteem and/or confidence within a school setting.

Our mission is to enable each pupil to leave our school with renewed confidence in their ability  and for this stepping stone to provide a springboard that re-invigorates their school career. 

We have a highly committed staff team who amaze me on a daily basis with their resilience, care and quality that  they provide. It is our goal for each child that attends our school to become the very best version of themselves that they can be. We pride ourselves in the high quality leadership at each school site and our excellent communication with our pupils, parents/carers, partnerships and our Local Advisory Board to ensure that we continue to progress as a school and our pupils receive the very best in alternative education."
