School leaders working in inclusive settings should be enabled to play a lead role in monitoring, self-review and evaluation by aligning accountability measures with inclusive education policy.

School leaders working in inclusive settings should be enabled to play a lead role in monitoring, self-review and evaluation by aligning accountability measures with inclusive education policy.

Education authorities can support this by:

  • developing quality assurance and accountability in line with inclusive practice to support school leaders to gain recognition for effective inclusive practice in their schools;
  • ensuring the balance between autonomy and accountability, which will influence how flexible inclusive school leaders can be in ensuring equity and sustaining the inclusive practice for which they are held accountable.

Project findings and outputs from the Supporting Inclusive School Leadership project can be found in the project web area.
