Description

Clear and accessible, Using an Inclusive Approach to Reduce School Exclusion supports an inclusive approach to teaching and learning to help schools find ways to reduce exclusion and plan alternative approaches to managing the pathways of learners at risk.

Offering a summary of the contemporary context of DfE and school policy in England, this book considers:

  • Statistics and perspectives from Ofsted
  • The literature of exclusion and recent research into effective provision for learners with SEN
  • The key factors underlying school exclusion
  • Case studies and practical approaches alongside theory and research
  • The impact of exclusion on learners at risk

Written by experienced practitioners, Using an Inclusive Approach to Reduce School Exclusion encourages a proactive approach to reducing exclusion through relatable scenarios and case studies. An essential toolkit to support the development of inclusive practice and reduce exclusion, this book is an invaluable resource for SENCos, middle and senior leaders.
