Arrangements for the admission of Children with Disabilities

The admission of children with disabilities is considered in the first instance in the same way as non-disabled children.  Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility and the school would work with parents/carers and other agencies involved to ensure that appropriate provision could be provided.  It is the school policy to accommodate children with disabilities should parents wish, and individual needs are planned for to prevent any children with disabilities being treated less favourably than other children.

In practice, we ensure that classroom and extra-curricular activities encourage the participation of all children, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.  Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all children.

In February 2022 we relocated to a new purpose built school building which is fully accessible to wheelchair users.  Our new school is built over two floors and has lift access available for those who are unable to use the stairs.

Further details on accessibility can be found on our Key Policies page within the Accessibility Plan.
