Video: lessons from Eastlea
You may remember Eastlea Community School from Inclusion Now 45. A new 20 minute film about inclusion work at Eastlea has been produced by Richard Rieser of World of Inclusion together with the school. Directed and edited by Becky Bell it is an excellent contribution to the argument for more inclusive practice. With the voice of managers, teachers, teaching assistants and young people it is a powerful testament to what can be achieved when a school has a long term commitment to inclusive education. The film has recently had subtitles added.
Training: person-centred planning
Inclusive Solutions are now offering training aimed at developing Person Centred Planning for staff of Local Authority or Multi Academy Trusts.
Person Centred Planning is a way of expressing a set of inclusive values through a unique range of tools and techniques. The Children and Families Act and guidance require participation of children, young people and their parents/carers in decision making at both individual and strategic levels. The use of Person Centred Approaches provides the opportunity to fulfil those principles.
Young people and DPOs
ALLFIE’s recently produced toolkit, “Knowledge is Power” is designed for use by Disabled People’s Organisations with Disabled young people, and has session plans for understanding identity, developing skills & building confidence.
It is a chance to step into the future and educate Disabled young people about the power they have and their rights!
