The key questions we aim to address this seminar:
1) Is inclusive education affected by political influences, if so how and why ?
2) Are children without Special Educational Needs (SEN) affected in a positive or negative way within the system of inclusive education ?
3) Would the needs of SEN children be better addressed in specialised schools?
After watching the video about Morgan and her experience with inclusion, do you think this would be the experience of many other children with special educational needs? Why or why not?
We encourage you to share any experiences you have had, good and bad that relate to inclusion

added support though.
“the parent of the pupil refuses to comply or to allow the pupil to comply with the
rules, regulations or disciplinary requirements of the school “
“that they consider that in all the circumstances to allow the pupil to continue his/her attendance at the school would be likely to be seriously detrimental to order and discipline in the school or to the educational well-being of pupils there”
(Munn et al, 2011)
A greater proportion of
children with additional

The figures show
that there are
children who receive
free school meals
of these children are known to have a
special need of some form
children are both recognised as
having a special need and being looked
after by the state
Social Class and
Boys are more likely than girls to be
identified as having additional support needs, excluded from school, and placed in special
schools or units.
In 2005, 70% of pupils with additional
support needs, 68% of pupils
attending special schools and 79%
of those excluded
from schools were male.
There is a growing opinion
in both Scotland and England that inclusion has “gone too far” and that there is more of a need to have additional support for the children with
