We have been involved in three projects set out to enhance students' experience of mainstream school and college:
What about us?
This was an action research project carried out in collaboration with the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University. The project explored how students with learning disabilities/difficulties could feel included in their educational settings by encouraging them to question aspects of their school and college life.
The Inclusion Assistant
A partnership with the Alliance for Inclusive Education, which examined the role of non-teaching assistants in mainstream education. The project involved students describing their ideal assistant and comparing that to the level of support they currently received.
Moving on to secondary school
In this project, we worked with pupils with SEND to develop guides to help make the move from primary to secondary mainstream schools less stressful.
