Permeating Themes

This section highlights themes that are particularly useful to Special Educational Needs, and flow through the curriculum. For example, the focus on noticing and language challenge deterministic approaches to pupils who have diagnostic labels.

These permeating themes align quality teaching approaches to working with learners who struggle.

The resource consists of downloadable powerpoints. Each supports an inclusive pedagogy and together they are a guide through a trainee’s journey, which can be returned to again and again.
