2018 Education Focus Prize – Takatū prize
Each year there are four award categories and an Education Focus Prize.
The 2018 Education Focus Prize celebrates outstanding inclusive practices that enable all children and young people with additional learning needs to succeed.
How do we define inclusion?
In fully inclusive schools and early learning services, all children and young people are engaged and achieving through being present, participating, learning, and belonging.
We are talking about any child or young person who may experience a barrier to their learning at some stage in their learning career. This could relate to (but is not exclusive to) a disability, language, trauma, behaviour, mental health, identity.
For examples of inclusive practice watch videos we've produced on previous finalists and winners from other categories, to learn more about their stories.
