An Analysis of the Quality of Whole-School Planning for Learning Support
Keywords:Primary Schools, Planning, SEN, Special Educational Needs, DES, Planning Process
This article begins by outlining the planning requirements for primary schools both generally and then specifically in the context of special educational needs (SEN). It also looks at guidelines offered to schools in recent years by the Department of Education and Skills to inform the planning process. The article then analyses a small sample of policies and assesses the extent to which they conform to requirements and guidelines. Finally, common themes emerging from the analysis are identified and corresponding implications for future work in the area are offered.
