Introduction

The vision in Success for All - Every School Every Child requires that all schools demonstrate welcoming and enabling learning environments. The Success for All policy recognises the right of students with disabilities to be educated and to achieve in the same educational settings as all other students.

This policy promotes the achievement, participation, and presence of children with special education needs in every mainstream school. The policy’s aim is for schools to respond to the child’s needs.

This is ERO’s second report about how schools view their provisions for students with special education needs. The first report, Including Students with Special Needs: School Questionnaire Responses (April 2012), documented responses from schools reviewed during Terms 1 and 2, 2011.
