About Smile

A Few Words Smile Project

The Model for Inclusive School Environment was developed by the Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE) in partnership with five schools in order to implement and scale up inclusive policies, practices and culture at school. After its creation, CIE implemented the Model in another 10 partner schools in order to test its applicability in different school environments, further advance it and demonstrate its effectiveness.
