Accessibility Arrangements

The SEN and Disability Act 2001 extended the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) to cover education. 


The Governing Body duties towards disabled pupils, under Part 4 of the DDA include:


  • not to treat disabled pupils less favourably for a reason related to their disability;

  • to make reasonable adjustments for disabled pupils, so that they are not at a substantial disadvantage;

  • to plan to increase access to education for disabled pupils.


    This plan sets out the proposals of the Governing Body of the school to increase access to education for disabled pupils required by the planning duties in the DDA:


  • increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the school curriculum;

  • improving the environment of the school to increase the extent to which disabled pupils can take advantage of education and associated services;

  • improving the delivery to disabled pupils of information which is provided in writing for pupils who are not disabled.


It is a requirement that the school’s accessibility plan is resourced, implemented and reviewed and revised every three years. 


The accessibility policy can be found by following this link:


Universal Provision

Our universal provision for all children is about quality first teaching that takes into account different levels of need, adapting teaching where appropriate. Work and/or teaching is adapted according to need with opportunities to challenge, extend and embed the pupils' learning in line with national age-related expectations.


Examples of Strategies and resources include:

  • Additional Teaching Time

  • Personalised learning, eg. Short term additional teaching groups, 1:1 time limited, small group work in class.

  • Positive affirmation and nurturing ethos. Social and emotional wellbeing is integral to our school vision. We are passionate about a universal provision of daily 'Headspace' sessions which can include: guided meditation, breathing or self-regulation strategies.

  • Forest Schools class sessions - one 'block' each year as a class 

  • Yoga sessions- each class will have one 'block' access to these sessions a year
