This book provides the busy teacher with all the information they need to make social inclusion a reality within schools.
By demonstrating how teachers and schools must work together to promote the wider welfare of all children, the book focuses particularly on the welfare of children on the margins of society who need the most protection.
It shows how teachers can aim to reduce inequalities and maximise the learning opportunities available for these vulnerable children, whatever their background or social class. The author addresses key issues such as:
- attendance and achievement
- exclusion and behaviour
- safeguarding and child protection
- children at risk of missing education.
By emphasizing the Every Child Matters agenda and the importance of joined-up partnership approaches with other professionals and agencies, this book is essential reading for all practitioners working to support pupils at risk of exclusion.
