The Inclusive School
The Inclusive School is a Melbourne-based consultancy and team of experts passionate about inclusive education approaches in schools to support all learners. Inspired by the work of Shulman (2005), Rouse (2009), Sharma (2018) and others in this space, The Inclusive School acknowledges the major factors that drive effective inclusive education: the professional 'work' of an inclusive educator encompasses the head (knowledge and theoretical background), the heart (ethical, attitudinal and beliefs we commit to), and the hands (the skills required for effective inclusive education) as essential for supporting diverse learners.
