Implementation of assessment policy - Portugal

Since the 1990s Portugal has been improving conditions for pupils with SEN by providing quality learning and access to mainstream education.

Nowadays inclusive school basic principles – based upon humanistic beliefs concerned with people’s rights, equity and social justice – are unquestionable. Teachers, parents and politicians recognise that traditional, formal models can lead to segregation and discrimination making social and educational integration difficult for disabled people. However, in order to maintain and develop quality education for these pupils it is important not only to preserve the availability of specialised human resources and specific tools but also to implement severe changes in the schools organisation and in pedagogical practice.
