Inclusion Toolkit

KCC’s Inclusion Toolkit is drawn from national research and best practice in schools across Kent and is designed to be a one-stop reference point for great inclusive practice guidance.

It is a self-evaluation tool which can be used by individual schools or collaborations, either in part or in its entirety. It can be used independently by schools or initiated and supported by a range of colleagues in the role of critical friend.

It is intended to support schools or collaborations who want to:

  • demonstrate in a cohesive way the range of things they do to promote inclusion
  • develop and agree a benchmark for different areas of shared good practice and to facilitate peer-to-peer support
  • support collaborative processes such as In Year Fair Access
  • build confidence between schools regarding inclusive practice to facilitate peer-to-peer support
  • demonstrate inclusive practice to Ofsted using references to the current framework and planning for proposed developments
  • evidence examples of good practice and highlight resources and services to improve outcomes for vulnerable learners.

The toolkit is in four parts:
