We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual and emotional needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
What we do to prevent pupils with disabilities from being treated less favourably:
At Brandon Primary all children with SEN engage in school activities alongside children who do not have SEN. We make reasonable adjustments to ensure that all children with SEN are not at a disadvantage compared with that of their peers. Our school’s admission policy ensures that all children are admitted regardless of their SEN need. We regularly review and evaluate the breadth and impact of the support we offer, or access, to make sure we are doing everything we can to meet the needs of children with SEN.
The facilities to assist access are outlined in our Accessibility Plan
Our Accessibility Plan and the short, medium and long term actions, will be reviewed and adjusted on an annual basis and a new Accessibility Plan will be produced every three years.
The Accessibility Plan contains relevant actions to:
- Improve access to the physical environment of the school, adding specialist facilities as necessary.
- Increase access to the curriculum for pupils with a disability. This covers reasonable adjustments within teaching and learning, specialist aids and equipment and the wider curriculum of the school, such as after school clubs, visits etc,
- Improve the provision of information to pupils, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities. All information will be made available in various formats within a reasonable time frame.
