Inclusive Teaching Checklist

Reading Time: 2 minutes

How can you tell if you’ve maximised inclusion in the classroom?

This brand new free resource is an Inclusion Checklist to use in your classroom to ensure your classroom is as inclusive as it can be.

It is split into four sections over four pages, allowing you to focus on a particular area:

  1. Whole class teaching
  2. Group and independent work
  3. The role of additional adults: whole class
  4. The role of additional adults: group and individual work

Why is it useful?

We make a lot of effort to include all our students and it is just great to check our practice against a quite authoritative list. This checklist can be particularly useful for newer teachers and those who have taken on a class with some significant SEN.

Who is it for?

This can be used by either a teacher themselves or by a line manager.

How do I use it?

  • Do a self-evaluation or get a peer to do one for you.
  • If you are a line manager/head of Key Stage or Department, use it to work with your group of teachers.
  • Some of the best applications of this resource is when SENCOs use it to help support teachers in their practice – key word here being “SUPPORT”!
  • The checklist is just a rough guide and we believe that you need to be able to flex and adapt to the needs of your students so don’t be rigid about this.
