Tip 3. Access and use the inclusion resources

To support the inclusion agenda in school remember to use and embed the inclusion resources in your daily teaching and learning activities. There are so many key resources accessible to you that will support not only individual learners but group and whole class teaching and learning opportunities.

Remember to use the filter menu to locate specific resources for specific needs

Here is an example of a school using Busy Things across the age ranges for many curriculum teaching and learning opportunities.

Tip 4. Look at our case studies for inspiration and support ideas

We have an increasing vault of case studies of leaders and classroom practitioners in the field of inclusion via our case study resources area. We are building a wide range of accessible case studies from a range of schools to support inclusive practices across all schools. This case study clip below is from Whitefield School in Liverpool,  an outstanding primary school and an extremely inclusive school that celebrates a culture of possibility. In this clip, Deputy Headteacher, Marie Beale, explains how their inclusive approach helped pupils during periods of remote learning and how they use technology and LGfL resources to support all learners.

Tip 5. Embed our inclusion calendar so you don't miss out on key dates throughout the year.

So you don't miss out on those important national dates and initiatives both in inclusion and well-being update your calendar with our inclusion calendar. This marks key inclusion and well-being awareness dates throughout the year with links to relevant resources and further information

Tip 7. Visit our Edtech hubs site for inspiration

Build up your knowledge of inclusive practices by accessing the EdTech hubs site   This is a developing community of practice that provides peer-to-peer support for the effective use of technology for enhancing teaching and learning in schools and colleges across England. One of the main themes of the EdTech resources is in supporting inclusive practice  

There is also a fascinating series of evidence from HighFurlong School in Oldham explaining how they use technology to support a wide range of learners and how Highfurlong staff have supported and helped mainstream colleagues gain a better understanding of the profile of needs of their learners.
