Getting started with Self-review
The Inclusive Practices Tool (IPT) school self-review is about engaging the whole school community in a 5-step process to explore the extent to which school practices are inclusive of all students.
The review steps within the IPT cycle are developed from action research and health promotion processes and the toolkit is intended to be used as a part of a school self-review.
Getting started on Step 1: Planning and Preparation
Step 1 is about getting started with the self-review process. During Step 1, schools put in place the foundations needed for change.
Getting started on Step 2: Collecting Data
Step 2 is about collecting data to assess needs. During Step 2, schools use the Inclusive Practices survey tools and other information to build a picture of students’, staffs’, and other stakeholders’ views about school practice.
Getting started on Step 4: Taking Action
Step 4 is about implementing the action plan. During step 4, schools allocate resources, start to make changes, offer professional learning, and monitor actions.
Getting started on Step 5: Reviewing and Next Steps
Step 5 is about reviewing and reflecting on progress. During Step 5, schools re-use the Inclusive Practices survey tools to collect data to review actions. We suggest that a formal review of progress happens annually, and a major review after 3-5 years.
