      • Inclusive school improvement is a process that aims to support the development of sustainable inclusive practice in schools through an ongoing school improvement involving self-evaluation
      • Ultimate aim: school where all children from the community are enrolled and are successful
      • It offers a framework for school self-evaluation, prioritizing needs, taking action
      • As simple and clear as possible
      • Based on the Index for Inclusion
  • 4. 1.2 Definitions
      • Broad definition of inclusive education:
    • ‘ Teaching and learning which supports the participation and learning of all students’
  • 5. 2.1 Indicators and key questions
      • Instead of using a predefined set of indicators and key questions, the stakeholders develop their own indicators and key questions
      • Indicators are statements or aspirations against which the practice in the school can be compared in order to set priorities for school development
      • Involvement of different stakeholders and discussions are very important

        • Teachers and parents cooperate well
