Presumption of Mainstreaming
The Scottish Government has launched a Consultation, Excellence and Equity for All: Guidance on Presumption of Mainstreaming and is being announced as part of a Presumption of Mainstreaming Debate in Parliament.
It is intended to provide guidance on applying the presumption and looks to encourage a child centred approach to making decisions about placement. As the implementation of the presumption of mainstreaming requires a commitment to inclusive practice and approaches to be effective, the guidance clearly links inclusive practice with the presumption throughout and includes key features of inclusion and guidance on how to improve inclusive practice in schools. The link to the consultation paper is below and closed on 9th February, 2018.
