Inclusive Education On-site Support Service for Schools
The success of inclusive education provision relies heavily on the combined effort and co-operation of everyone in a school. Only when the staff members collectively devote their best can the school provide the required service and support to the students, the parents and their fellow peers.
The philosophy of the support service
“An educationally inclusive school is one in which the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of every young person matter. Effective schools are educationally inclusive schools. This shows, not only in their performance, but also in their ethos and their willingness to offer new opportunities to pupils who may have experienced previous difficulties.” An inclusive campus concerns about the learning effectiveness and level of participation of all students but not merely those with disabilities or special learning needs in particular. The development of a school should be a process directed towards inclusiveness, which includes rectifying the attitudes, values and behaviours of the stakeholders.
The aforementioned represents the core philosophy of our support service, and shall remain the emphasis of all dissemination efforts of inclusive education as we support the school.
