Entries are now open for this year’s awards, recognising good practice relating to inclusion in Scottish educational settings.
Returning for a second year, the Success Looks Different was developed by the national Inclusion Ambassadors to highlight and celebrate education settings that champion children’s rights and can demonstrate evidence of embedded inclusion practices within their ethos, values and in every day practice.
A winner will be selected across four categories: early years, primary, secondary and special schools.
All government funded schools are encouraged to apply, as well as local authority and partner nurseries.
This is the first time an early years category has been introduced, in recognition of the work taking place across ELC settings to include, adapt and support youngsters with additional support needs.
The award asks schools and early years settings to consider how they are using inclusive practices for children with additional support needs with entries judged across five main success criteria.
Identified by the Inclusion Ambassadors, each application will be judged on:
- Evidence of celebrating individuals and positive relationships
- Evidence of creativity and doing something different
- Evidence of sharing successes with the wider community
- Evidence of respecting and promoting children’s rights
- Recognition through awards and certificates
How to apply
A closing date has been set as Monday 3 July. Winners are expected to be announced in September.
