    Inclusive practice for secondary schools thumbnail The Inclusive practice for secondary schools; ideas for school leaders guide has been published and copies are being posted to principals of secondary schools during October 2014.

    This resource was informed by visits to 23 secondary schools last year to understand how they worked to include all students. The schools were asked about what was working well, the barriers being faced and actions being taken to accelerate or embed change.

    It offers ideas to support school leaders in understanding the needs of their learners and what their school can do to ensure all students are fully included; present, participating and achieving.

    Each school will recieve three copies - one for the leadership team, one for the additional learning support coordination team and a third to share with the Board of Trustees.

    You can download a PDF version of the Inclusive practice in secondary schools; ideas for school leaders publication (PDF, 522Kb) from the Ministry of Education website.

    Ask your principal if they have received their copies yet and if more copies are required ask your local RTLB or download the pdf version. Further print copies will be made available by order from Down the Back of the Chair (the Ministry's catalogue).

    Hi folks, apart from getting a member to 'leave group' is there another way to remove them if I am a moderator?

    Badda boom that works - learning something new every day - each post/poll can be set for different audience as can widgets and groups - so much flexibility it's positively mindblowing.

    Thanks for the super fast response Hayden.

    Hi, I can't seem to make my new Group Special Education Online profile public.

    The blog and poll widgets won't display in public view.

    Big thanks to the developer(s) that added email address as an option for login - that has made my life easier working with my groups, cheers Cool

    I've checked past topics to make sure this wasn't already mentioned so apologies if it has been covered off already.

    I have a user in my group who has forgotten her username, she has used Lost password to reset the password but without the correct user name it's not possible to reset?!

    I've looked into my own Account and Profile settings but cannot see the username specified anywhere. 

    What do you suggest I advise her to do in this circumstance?

    Thanks again!
