Film: History for All - Approaches from the Special Sector

By Gabrielle Reddington, published 6th August 2021

Whilst many teachers in mainstream schools now have useful links with primary coordinators and have a working knowledge of how the curriculum is approached and implemented in Key Stages 1&2, few colleagues have contact with special schools and the expertise which our colleagues in special education can share with us around teaching history to pupils with special educational needs and/or low prior attainment. This webinar offers an opportunity to learn more about some of the curriculum planning and implementation ideas our colleagues in special schools use to ensure that history is not an exclusive subject but one that is truly for all.

Gabrielle Reddington is a Schools and Settings Leadership Adviser for Durham County Council. Following a long period as the County’s Specialist Inspector for History, she now has a senior role working across primary, secondary and special schools supporting whole school leadership, governance and curriculum development. Her heart, however, remains in history and she works closely with several special schools across the region on their history provision.
