How to Implement an Effective Inclusion & SEND Resource Base

How to Implement an Effective Inclusion & SEND Resource Base

Main Points

  • “Of all the children excluded from schools in England last year, 47% had some form of special educational needs, according to Department for Education figures.” (Martin, 2023)


  • Alarmingly, just 1 per cent of excluded young people go on to achieve five good GCSEs including English and Maths. Excluded pupils are also far more likely to be economically inactive aged 25 and have far higher rates of involvement with the criminal justice system.” (Suspending Reality, CSJ, 2024)

We can implement an effective inclusion and SEND resource base by: 

  • Collaboration and shared ownership among school leaders, professionals, and families.
  • A clear vision and mission outlining support types and student aspirations.
  • Qualified staff with expertise in SEND requirements.
  • Physically accessible spaces with adaptable furniture and sensory considerations.
  • Individualised learning plans with diverse teaching methods.
  • Open communication channels between parents, teachers, and students.
  • Regular monitoring and evaluation to track progress and adapt strategies.
  • A flexible hybrid approach integrating online alternative provision for separate learning locations.

"I’d 100 per cent recommend EDClass to other schools. The team are first class, so supportive, attentive with every detail and it’s ever-changing."

David Paul, Head of Year 7, Rodillian Academy 

I'd definitely recommend EDClass. The students are still getting that high-quality education from EDClass that they would be getting in a mainstream school I've also mentioned it to schools outside the trust because I feel like it's something that can really benefit from from a lot of points from different schools."

Kyle Dixon, Inclusion Lead, Bluecoat Beechdale Academy 

"I would recommend EDClass to others it's another kind of bow in your arsenal of supporting students, making sure learning is going on even if they can't be in school. So EDClass in that regard is absolutely superb."

Christopher Sandall, Assistant Principal for Inclusion, Hethersett Academy
