Thanks to state-of-the-art technology facilities, pupils from Crosshill Secondary Special School, Blackburn, were able to produce a video based on Macbeth.
We see them developing key skills to complete their project, editing and selecting sound tracks for their film, which they plan to publish on DVD.
The programme also follow pupils Jack and Steven to their local mainstream school for team sports as part of a wider Crosshill vision of inclusion, which sees many such transitions between schools. Crosshill was the first special school in the country to achieve technology college status and attracts the wider community, offering entry-level courses to local high schools in media, business studies and arts GCSE.
The principles and practice of the inclusive classroom are examined in a lively discussion with key staff, chaired by Professor Mel Ainscow from Manchester University, who acts as a mentor to the staff.
See the resources and support materials page for an assessment sheet and two assessment examples.
