These resources aim to bring together and share good inclusive practice, focusing on approaches to improve the engagement and achievement of all learners including those who require additional support.
The CIRCLE resources were developed through a collaboration between Queen Margaret University, NHS Lothian and City of Edinburgh Council. Based on the reflections and ideas of education staff, this resource provides practical strategies to support the underlying skills that pupils require to enable them to participate in school. The CIRCLE Framework is a way of organising and supporting input using a staged system of support, beginning with setting up an inclusive classroom. Checklists and planning tools area included to support discussion, and can be used to document strategies used and record professional learning.
Overall, the resources aim to empower education staff to support all pupils, to promote inclusive practice and to encourage effective collaboration between school staff, parents/carers, partner services and other agencies.
While strengthening a whole school approach they can also be used by individual practitioners improving their classroom setting or their approach to supporting individual learners.
For secondary practitioners there is an accompanying professional learning module which allows the CIRCLE resource to be explored in more depth.
