It is vital to support participation and equality of access in order for all children and young people have equal opportunities offered to them regardless of their personal background. Equality, diversity and inclusion within a school are very important. It is essential that they are being offered support and contain the right to participate so that they can work and accomplish to the best of their ability.

Inclusion “is the process of identifying, understanding and breaking down barriers to participation and belonging” (Sue Griffin 2008, p17) This is about making sure all children and young people who have needs, to have access to support systems such as access around the school for wheelchair users or those in crutches etc as well as providing sign materials in braille.
