Inclusion Framework

Closes 26 Feb 2021

Opened 4 Jan 2021


The Inclusion Framework is designed to be a whole school self-evaluation tool and is being piloted in schools, early years, post 16 and other education settings this academic year.  It aims to facilitate useful and constructive discussions that will highlight good practice and inform whole school and setting development.

The Inclusion Framework was designed by schools, settings, parent carers, local authority officers and other partners.


Why we are consulting

We have asked schools, early years, post 16 and other education settings to test out the Inclusion Framework. We are keen to hear your initial views on what works well, how the resources could be used to make the biggest impact and how they can be improved further.

You can view the Inclusion Framework by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.

We will consult again towards the end of the pilot and will use feedback from both consultations to improve the Inclusion Framework.
