NEW!…..Inclusive Learning Online Portal (ILOP)

Giving Every Teacher the Confidence to be the Teacher of SEND

  • Lesson strategies that promote inclusive teaching and learning in mathematics and English for all pupils, including those with SEND
  • Evidence-based intervention strategies to support gaps in attainment and promote catch-up
  • Strategies rooted in specialist teaching techniques and influenced by latest evidence of what works, adapted for mainstream and intervention classes
  • Printable resources with every strategy
  • Animated PowerPoint slides provided
  • 15% discount on mathematical Cuisenaire® rods
  • Guidance, tools and access to advice for SENCOS
  • Continually up-to-date and relevant
  • The cost is just…  £1 per pupil per year

Imagine if an online portal existed with a wealth of guidance, tools and access to advice for SENCOS.

Imagine if it were a place where teachers could have unlimited access to High Quality First Teaching Strategies, giving every teacher the confidence to be the inclusive teacher of all pupils, allowing access and participation by all and ensuring excellent pupil progress.

Imagine if it included a wealth of evidence-based intervention strategies targeting specific objectives of the curriculum that children have not yet mastered. 

Imagine if it was offered at a price that any school could afford – large or small!

Who are we ?

Inclusive Learning North, led by Zena Martin, provides high quality support, training and consultancy to schools providing for 3-11 year-olds in the north of England.

Our Inclusion Forums are ever-popular, both with the number of schools taking part and the strength of voice it has to enable positive development in schools’ inclusive practice and the products and services provided to support them. As Director of Inclusive Learning North, Zena seeks to bring to the Inclusion Forums the best research, practice, resources and expertise in both SEND and wider aspects of inclusion, from around the UK and beyond.
