Guidance on the presumption to provide education in a mainstream setting.

Executive Summary

Guidance on the presumption to provide education in a mainstream setting aims to bridge the gap between legislation, policy and day-to-day experience, to ensure that local authorities have the guidance required to support their decision making in applying the presumption to provide education in a mainstream setting. It is intended to provide guidance on the presumption and looks to encourage a child centred approach to making decisions about placement.

As the implementation of the presumption requires a commitment to inclusive practices and approaches to be effective, this guidance clearly links inclusive practice with the presumption throughout and sets out key features for inclusion and guidance on how to improve inclusive practice in schools.
