Leading Inclusion in a Secondary School is a practical guide to one of the most challenging and rewarding roles in a secondary setting. It highlights the key responsibilities and offers practical advice on how to lead groups of staff, embed an ethos and most importantly be the advocate for all the children in the school.
Focusing on the core areas of inclusion - behaviour; SEND; safeguarding; attendance; pupil premium and OFSTED - the book provides an overview of each area and explores the skills and knowledge that are required to lead it successfully. Each chapter shares tried and tested strategies and systems for promoting inclusion alongside practical examples, case studies, thinking points and scenarios to take the reader on a comprehensive journey of the role.
This is an essential text for all current and aspiring leaders of inclusion including heads of year, senior leaders, safeguarding leads, welfare managers and so on, that will help to build an overarching strategy for inclusion in their school.
