This section talks in more detail about how to recognise need and what inclusive learning is. We describe how inclusive practice goes beyond integration to involve pupils, their families and school staff in making the environment, the curriculum and assessments truly accessible, so each child has the best possible educational opportunities. We look at inclusive learning in schools at each phase of education.

We also talk more about what makes an inclusive school and how to adapt the physical aspects of the classroom as well as how to create a more nurturing environment.

And we look at the role of the family and the impact inclusive practice has on other children.

You can use this checklist to review your plans for inclusion within the school and classrooms. The Learning activities checklist is a useful guide for ensuring your approaches, lessons and activities are tailored for disabled and SEN pupils.
