- Equality and Accessibility Plan

Public bodies, including local authority maintained schools, are covered by the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011.

Accessibility Plan


The aim of this plan is to ensure that all students have full access to the curriculum and to the school. The school already provides for the additional needs of disabled pupils who have special educational needs (SEND).


One of our duties is to plan to increase over time the accessibility of school for disabled pupils, staff and visitors. A person has a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse affect on their ability to carry out normal day-to- day activities.


As a school we will work alongside the LA in order to:

Increase access for disabled pupils and parents/carers to the school curriculum. This covers teaching and learning and the wider curriculum of the school such as participation in after-school clubs, leisure and cultural activities or school visits.

Improve access to the physical environment of school. This covers improvements to the physical environment of the school and physical aids to access education.

Improve the delivery of written information to disabled pupils and parents/carers. This will include planning to make written information that is normally provided by the school to its pupils available to disabled pupils and parents/carers. Examples might include newsletters, handouts, timetables, textbooks and information about school events. The information should take account of pupils’ disabilities and pupils’ and parents’/carers’ preferred formats and be made available within a reasonable time frame, on request.


The school is accessible for people with disability;

  • there are disabled toilets
  • we have wide corridors
  • we have wide entrance doors
  • there are disabled parking spaces for parents and visitors to use
  • access to the main entrance is via doors that automatically open
  • sockets are set at an appropriate height
  • colour schemes have been chosen for clear definition
