`This is an extremely timely book, which would be a very useful addition to any staffroom library' - Special

`One of the most detailed overviews on what is really happening with inclusion at ground level. In years to come, professionals will remember they used Rona Tutt's book for identifying where good practice was really happening. Along with Rita Cheminais and Anne Hayward, this must rate as one of the most useful texts of the decade' - Tricia Barthorpe, Past President of the National Association of Special Educational Needs, (NASEN)

How can your school or setting become part of a truly inclusive education service that provides for all children and young people?

Looking at the Every Child Matters agenda and the government's strategy for special educational needs (SEN), this book moves beyond the debate about specialist provision to explore the exciting developments that are taking place in both mainstream and special schools, as they join forces to provide for pupils with increasingly complex needs.

It provides examples of innovative ways forward that will help all schools develop their own strategies to support those pupils who find it hardest to learn.

Topics covered include:

o successful strategies for supporting pupils in mainstream schools

o the benefits of co-located schools, federations and partnerships

o the developing role of day and residential special schools

o the changing nature of support and advisory services

The book is essential reading for school leaders and senior management teams, and will be of interest to governors, policy makers and all those involved in the training and professional development of the school workforce.

Rona Tutt is a Past President of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) and works as an SEN consultant, writer and researcher.
