At an individual level each child, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability or family background, should have the opportunity to fulfill their educational potential. At a whole school level, a good school will have an inclusive ethos, dealing effectively with prejudice, stereotyping, name calling and other forms of bullying. Intrinsically education rests on "inclusive" values. This book will unpack all these sensitive and wide ranging aspects of inclusion using an accessible, practical and non-threatening approach.
