Product description


'Great Expectations' is essential reading for all teachers. Each contributor has huge experience of improving outcomes for students, and they are able to cut through complex areas with common-sense, real-life advice. When a school improves its SEN provision all students and teachers benefit, irrespective of background or ability. This book should be mandatory reading for everyone involved in schools. --Dr David James, Deputy Head (Academic), editor of 'World Class: tackling the ten biggest challenges facing schools today'.

In an educational landscape that features centralisation, standardisation and performativity, the concept of inclusion becomes more fragile and the processes and practice of inclusion become more challenging. 'Great Expectations' is a solution-focused and accessible book where the real world practical challenges of inclusion are explored in a variety of contexts. This book offers a breadth of perspectives and an impressive range of voices every one of them committed to making inclusion in education succeed in the classroom and beyond. --Dr. Tim O'Brien, Visiting Fellow In Psychology and Human Development. UCL Institute of Education

As the book makes clear, setting high expectations for children with SEND and enabling them to achieve is everyone's responsibility. This engaging and practical book isn't just for those working directly with pupils with SEND; everyone from classroom practitioners to school leaders and governors to policy-makers will learn from the evidence and successful approaches described. --Dr Kate Chhatwal, Chief Executive, Challenge Partners

'The strength of this book can be found in the diversity and thoughtfulness of its perspectives, coupled with the recognition that the education of children with SEND is a collective responsibility best served by the inclusion of the voices and expertise of children and young people and their families. If you want to improve the way in which children with SEND are educated, and you should, then this accessible and practical book is a necessary addition to your library.' - Simon Knight, Special School Leader and National SEND Leader at Whole School SEND
