This booklet is intended to be used with the Management guide (00069-2007BKT-EN) booklet to support school senior leaders in developing a strategic approach to raising the attainment of the pupils of Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Somali and Turkish heritage pupils in their schools. Through a focus on key elements of effective inclusive practice, self-evaluation and targeted action, this guidance gives an emphasis to identifying the needs of and providing support to Muslim pupils.

This guidance document is divided into three main sections:

  • Developing an inclusive ethos
  • Curriculum, learning and teaching
  • Parents and the community

Each section includes some introductory information followed by discussion activities for use by senior and middle leaders.

The sections are designed to be used selectively depending on the priorities identified by the school. Each section can stand alone and they are not intended to be sequential.
