1.        Background

The National Policy documentations: A Policy on Inclusive Education in Schools: Route to Quality Inclusion and A National Inclusive Education Framework will guide educators, schools, parents, professionals and all other stakeholders in the journey towards quality inclusion in educational settings. These documents celebrate the good practice that has been going in schools for many years and it aims at giving a comprehensive, structured and harmonised guide to strengthen inclusion, provide equitable opportunities and inclusive practices in our schools.  


The policy adopts a wide definition of inclusion which includes among others, learners with disabilities, learners with different sexual orientation, learners from ethnic minorities and different religions, high ability learners to reflect the reflect

the cohort of students at school. 


In line with the Education Strategy of the Ministry of Education and Employment.(MEDE), as stated in the Framework for Education Strategy for Malta 2014-2024, it promotes the setting of an inclusive educational setting that ensures that all learners have the opportunity to obtain the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be active citizens and to succeed at work and in society.  


Both policy and framework are built upon international and local conventions as well as policies. These policy documents compliment the new secondary education reform My Journey: Achieving through different paths that promotes a transformation from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to an inclusive and equitable system for all learners.  


The policy describes benchmarks and standards that encourage schools engage in inclusive practices. Also, the framework is built upon a number of themes which will guide schools on implementing the policy.   Through the engagement with these documents, a paradigm shift in educational settings is encouraged so that schools move from barriers hindering inclusion towards a truly inclusive educational system.
