Benefits of using the Inclusive Education Audit

Using the Inclusive Education Audit process is beneficial for education settings in a number of ways:

  • To enable settings to identify their strengths and areas for improvement in inclusive practice
  • To inform the setting’s development plan and identify training needs
  • To support with preparation for inspections in the area of inclusive education from external agencies
  • To support settings identifying areas of focus when accessing supportive services, such as the Educational Psychology Team
  • To provide regular opportunities to coproduce with parents/carers and pupils
  • To access a range of support with implementing the auditing tool provided by the Inclusion Audit manager
  • To access the range of support with inclusive education available as part of the process. This includes universal support, peer mentoring and individual setting support
  • As a city-wide audit, it can become a vehicle for sharing good practice and peer mentoring opportunities
  • To support the development of a collaborative approach for meeting the needs of all children and young people in Southampton
  • To inform the triangulation of information discussed at the Schools Monitoring Group (SMG) to support with understanding areas of strengths and development areas across the city
