This Critical Focus contains key extracts from Inclusive Primary Teaching: A Critical Approach to Equality and Special Educational Needs and provides an introduction to primary inclusion by examining two important aspects of inclusive learning environments: the inclusive classroom; and the inclusive curriculum. The physical environment and ethos of the classroom give vital clues to its inclusive nature and, together with the way the curriculum is delivered, shows how provision can be made for children to achieve.

She has taught children with profound and multiple learning difficulties who otherwise would have had to attend a special school. She has also taught children with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD as well as children who have social difficulties. She is now a senior lecturer teaching inclusion at Sheffield Hallam University and hopes to pass on her passion for inclusive practice to trainee teachers and SENCos.
