A secondary school shows how the inclusion of girls with severe and complex needs has benefitted not only the SEN students, but also their mainstream peers.

Three girls from the Discovery Group at Mulberry School for Girls, London, visit a local primary school, along with three of their mainstream peers, to tell a story to a Year 2 class.

Atiyya and Anisa's former teacher talks about how their presence in her class helped develop the receptive and expressive language skills of other pupils.

Teachers from the Learning Support Group share the knowledge they have built up through working with the Discovery Group with two other teachers in the school, Kishan Bhatt and Sally Butler.

Kishan and Sally then outline how including the Discovery Group in their lessons has helped their other students.
