CIRCLE (Education Scotland)

The Education Scotland resource, The CIRCLE Framework, was introduced to Renfrewshire staff to support and ensure common Universal Support practice across the authority.

The CIRCLE Framework has been shared over the course of the last year to all three sectors. This resource was implemented to allow all staff to build confidence on how to create the most inclusive classroom. The resource also builds confidence and knowledge in staff to be able to identify barriers to learning in our young people. Equally it builds confidence in planning and implementing support.

The CIRCLE Framework uses a staged system of support, beginning with setting up an inclusive classroom. Checklists and planning tools are then included to support discussion and can be used to document strategies used and record professional learning.

Across Renfrewshire we have focussed on the CIRCLE Inclusive Classroom Scale and the CIRCLE Participation Scale to support staff on how to measure and record progress.

Overall, the Framework aims to empower all staff to support all pupils, to promote inclusive practice and to encourage effective collaboration between school staff, parents, carers, partner services and other agencies.

The Framework can be used to strengthen a whole school approach to improving inclusive practice but can also be used by individual practitioners improving their classroom setting or their approach to supporting an individual learner.
