Inclusion in Practice – The CIRCLE Framework: Secondary
    • Welcome

      Secondary School Resource

      The CIRCLE Framework of Inclusion was developed by Edinburgh City Council, Queen Margaret University and NHS Lothian to promote effective inclusive practice in classrooms. A version for primary schools was first developed followed by a secondary version.

      Full details of those involved in developing the CIRCLE Framework materials can be found in the Secondary CIRCLE Framework, which is available for download in the ‘Useful information’ section of this course. 

      The Secondary CIRCLE Framework materials have been adapted by Education Scotland in consultation with Edinburgh City and Queen Margaret University to develop this module - ‘Inclusion in Practice: The CIRCLE Framework’.
