‘Joining In’, 10/06/08 [W]

Estyn, the education and training inspectorate for Wales, has published recommendations and examples of good practice for schools and Local Education Authorities (LEAs) on how to support pupils with moderate learning difficulties.

Estyn’s report looks at the quality of education for learners aged 5-16 who have moderate learning difficulties and are taught in dedicated classes called resource bases attached to mainstream schools. Estyn reports that many pupils have a good range of opportunities to join in with their mainstream peers and that staff support pupils well to help them find and keep friends at school.

The report recommends that schools which host resource bases should improve training and support for mainstream staff who have pupils from resource bases in their lessons.

The report can be downloaded from Estyn’s website.
