This chapter explores the drivers of inclusive design; the social model of disability that informed principles and values underlying inclusive design; and the legal framework that has shaped a compliance culture of policy-making.Little attention has been paid to the ways in which school design shapes and is shaped by the practices of inclusion, with the focus largely disability specific. The chapter provides a review of the empirical literature and places this alongside guidance and reaches a conclusion that inclusive design is not an optional add-on but the essence of good design.
