Arrangements for the admission of pupils with a arrangements disability
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 defines a disabled person as one who has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a persons’ ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. Most children with Special Needs will not be disabled within the meaning of the Act. The admission of pupils with disabilities is considered in the first instance in the same way as non-disabled pupils. Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility. It is the Governors’ Policy to accommodate pupils with disabilities should parents wish. Steps are taken to prevent any pupils being treated less favourably than other pupils. In practice we ensure that classroom and extra curricular activities encourage the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs. Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all pupils.
Existing facilities provided to assist access to the school by pupils with disabilities;
Wheelchair access at all entrances and sections of the school.
Carpeted classrooms to aid hearing impaired pupils learning.
Exterior lighting to improve evening access.
Disabled Toilet located next to the office and disabled parking is available at the main entrance.
Further information can be found in our accessibility plan.

Does your child have dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia affects fine and gross motor co-ordination and can cause problems for young people in planning, organising and carrying out movements in the right order in everyday situations.
There is a new book written by Emma Austin-Jones, The Lilac Story is a fairy tale featuring a group of characters who have varying degrees of dyspraxia. It is a story of inclusion, friendship and kindness and how it is OK to be grumpy sometimes. For more information visit www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/
