A Flagship School will determine for themselves who will be involved and the direction in which they choose to make progress. There is still the opportunity to work alongside other schools in an area, with the others acting as a Centre of Excellence. We have also considered the place of non-IQM schools and would advise a cluster of schools that, in order to move forward as a group, they will allow non-IQM schools to attend discussions and meetings as associates and hope that they will, in time, have an IQM assessment.
“Has your school got the capacity to play a strong leadership role in developing inclusion best practice across a network of schools; be committed to extending those networks and publish classroom-based research annually?”
