The ESQMI website sets out the Essential Criteria that form the standards for the Quality Mark for Inclusion.

The purpose of the website is for schools to complete and submit an evaluation response to the Essential Criteria Statements.

The deadline for completing the evaluation response via this website is 18th March 2019.

The website also provides links to additional resources to support schools’ development of inclusive practice.

Opportunities to discuss and explore further the ESQMI will be available via local SENCO hubs.
