About Inclusion Task Force

The Inclusion Taskforce (ITF) is the key strategic partnership group which reports to the Inclusion Improvement Board. The taskforce is a cross-sector, school-led group whose members include school leaders, SEND lead practitioners and Local Authority officers, including the SEND Assessment Team. It has representation from all localities within the city.

The objective of the Inclusion Taskforce is to lead the development of consistent and high quality inclusive practice across the city. The remit of the taskforce includes the development of:

  • Moderation – ensuring consistency in Sheffield Support Grid judgements and provision for children and young people with SEND.
  • Training – enabling and empowering the education workforce to deliver high quality inclusive provision.
  • Review – developing the tools to evaluate school practice in relation to SEND/Inclusion in order to facilitate support and challenge.
  • Data – developing the evidence base to inform and support school improvement.

The Inclusion Taskforce co-ordinates guidance & resources for the city and provides a core training offer to the city which can also be accessed via the menu above.

If you have questions about SEND/Inclusion please contact those leading within your locality, for example the Strategic Lead Headteacher or the Locality SENCO(s) as identified in the ITF membership page.
