Abstract

This article draws together my thinking in relation to SEN and inclusion that have dominated my practice. The article, through the concept of embodiment, revisits, reviews and reframes the key issues of, the construction of SEN, inclusion and the ideology that binds such together. Through this exploration, I argue we often seem to move forward with policy while in reality standing still in ensuring the ‘success’ of all of our pupils. By critiquing and reframing taken for granted assumptions and the sacred words of success and achievement, future directions of inclusive education will be mapped out. The article concludes with a reflection upon my first days as a teacher of SEN and my work to support Kenny a student with cerebral palsy. This personal reflection maps out a different form of educational success that perhaps could provide a forward momentum to develop more successful inclusive education policy and practice.
