The results of such an approach are:  Social isolation and sometimes disaffection of the students separated from peers  Low expectations of student achievement  “Mainstream” students unfamiliar with difference  Teachers using a limited range of teaching approaches

6 At Shatin Junior School we believe that educating children begins with what we value. We strive to be an inclusive school - All students are encouraged to participate in all school related activities to their best ability Enhanced Learning at Sha Tin Junior

7 Teachers’ thoughts…   Every learner has equal access and opportunity to learn   Helping everyone to achieve their personal best   All learning styles and needs are catered for   In an environment where difference is appreciated and respected   Becoming a full part of the learning community – being part of a group; feeling part of the class

8 Inclusion is a process not a placement Inclusion entitles all students:  to a broad, relevant and stimulating curriculum  in the environment that will have the greatest impact on their learning  and where they are able to learn, play and develop alongside each other within their local community of schools. ‘The goal of inclusion is to create a community of learners of all abilities, interests, and backgrounds’ 1 Defining Inclusive Education

9 ‘Inclusion assumes acceptance and respect of difference in school communities and collaborative efforts to address the educational needs of all students’ 2 ‘Inclusion is about social justice. Inclusion demands that we ask, what kind of world do we want to create and how should we educate students for that world? What kind of skills and commitments do people need to thrive in a diverse society’ 3
