At St. Ebbe’s, our vision statement details our aim is to have wise, compassionate citizens with the power to make a difference. Children with specific physical disabilities may need additional provision in order that they may be as curious, courageous and connected as their able-bodied peers. St. Ebbe’s is committed to doing all that it can to remove the barriers to ensure the equity needed for personal and educational thriving.
This policy should be read in conjunction with our Equality and Diversity Policy which outlines the foundational practice and principles which underline this policy.
Schools are required under the Equality Act 2010 to implement accessibility plans which are aimed at:
- Increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the curriculum
- Improving the physical environment of schools to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities and services provided
- Improving the availability of accessible information to disabled pupils
