INDEX FOR INCLUSION
The Index for Inclusion: Developing learning and participation in schools offers a supportive process of self-review and development as an alternative to one based on inspection, competition and fear of failure. It provides an opportunity to develop a school or other setting in collaboration with others in accordance with shared principles. It can be drawn upon in many different ways. It helps to clarify thinking and prompt individual and collective action as well as structure whole setting and community educational development. It is being used by individual teachers and practitioners, by non-teaching staff, by parents/carers and governors and managers. It can prompt new ideas about what children might learn and how teaching and learning can best be supported.
