Inclusion Task Force

Inclusion Task Force

Learn Sheffield Inclusion Team

The Learn Sheffield Inclusion Team is an expansion of the sector-led approach, which is the corner stone of our approach to school improvement, as part of the strategic approach to SEND and Inclusion.

Sheffield City Council funds a number of sector leaders as part of its support for the Inclusion Taskforce and this is supplemented by members of the Learn Sheffield team. This work will support Sheffield’s Inclusion Strategy and contribute to the SEND Written Statement of Action.

The Learn Sheffield Inclusion Team includes:

  • Ian Read (Watercliffe Meadow Primary - Primary Inclusion)
  • Scott Burnside (Chaucer Secondary - Secondary Inclusion)
  • Fiona Rigby (St Catherine’s Primary - Inclusion & SEND)
  • David Bartram (Learn Sheffield Improvement Partner)
  • Nick Whittaker (Learn Sheffield Improvement Partner)
  • Stephen Betts (Learn Sheffield Chief Executive)

This team works closely with colleagues from Sheffield City Council and the CCG, Locality and Sector Lead HTs and the City SENCO Team Priorities.

Our key current priorities are:

  • SEND Improvement (including the training offer)
  • SEND Processes (including moderation)
  • Parental Engagement & Communication
  • Sheffield Inclusion Model
