Accessibility Plan

Schools are required under the Equality Act 2010 to have an accessibility plan. The purpose of the plan is to:

  • Increase the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the curriculum
  • Improve the physical environment of the school to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities and services provided
  • Improve the availability of accessible information to disabled pupils

Our school aims to treat all its pupils fairly and with respect. This involves providing access and opportunities for all pupils without discrimination of any kind.

This Accessibility Plan is drawn up in compliance with current legislation and requirements as specified in Schedule 10, relating to Disability, of the Equality Act 2010. School Governors are accountable for ensuring the implementation, review and reporting on progress of the Accessibility Plan over a prescribed period.

 We are committed to providing an accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.

Targets Strategies Outcome Timeframe








Ensure the curriculum can be accessed by all children

Our school offers a differentiated curriculum

We use resources tailored to the needs of pupils who require support to access the curriculum.

Curriculum progress is tracked for all pupils, including those with a disability. Termly individual provision maps are created with the Inclusion Manager and teaching staff for those children with additional needs.

Interventions are monitored termly.  Targeted interventions are pitched at the next step in learning to enable pupils with SEND to make good progress. 

We use technology to support learning and access to the curriculum.

We use visual resources and timetables in all of our classrooms.

We seek advice from specialist agencies such as Drumbeat, SpLD, New Woodlands and the Educational Psychologist.

Staff are trained to manage a range of medical conditions.









All children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.
