Good practice promotes integrative and inclusive policies that are open to diversity, highlighting the educational values brought by all pupils, whatever origin or need they might have.
Schools should have adequate guidelines and resources in order to implement inclusive practice. Schools should aim to:
- Understand and respect diversity;
- Avoid any admission and registration policy that promotes segregation;
- Recognise, support and implement educational strategies responding to the needs of pupils with special educational needs and an immigrant background;
- Be actively involved in co-operation with services, including associations of and for immigrants;
- Encourage communication with, as well as participation of families.
These are some of the main findings of the Agency’s Multicultural Diversity and Special Needs Education (2007–2009) project which can be found in the project summary report and on the project web area.
