‘The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. It replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act, making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations.

Supporting Pupils with Writing Difficulties

Many schools have identified writing as an area for development. The National Curriculum states that pupils writing ‘should include narratives, explanations, descriptions, comparisons, summaries and evaluations’ (The National Curriculum in England, 2013).

The Impact of Sensory Processing in the Classroom
