Video: inclusion at Eastlea Community School
Children and staff of Eastlea Community School in Newham, London, talk about how inclusion works in the school, the challenges and benefits and what it means to them.
“One of the big things here is that they [Disabled children] get a lot of interaction with people from around the school and that benefits those people as well because they’re becoming more tolerant, they’re understanding the needs of others much more. I just think it’s a much better way to run a school.”
You can also read an interview with the parents of Finn, a child at Eastlea, about their battle for a mainstream place for him.
