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:
We are committed to establishing equality for all pupils, their parents, staff and other users of the school. This is reflected in our school aims, which state that :
We believe it is our responsibility to show our pupils the value of all people, to celebrate difference , and to take a stand for acceptance and inclusion. We see the wider Christian community as our church, and the parish as our natural partner.
We strive to provide a stimulating and caring environment rooted in Cristian values which develops our pupils, who can contribute to and shape the world in which they live. Our creative curriculum provides a range of opportunities that allow all children to flourish to their full potential , experience their own successes, grow in confidence and develop life long skills and attitudes. Children are encouraged to have a “ big voice” and influence school life and the wider world beyond.
Our school motto “ Together We Succeed” encapsulates this. “
The facilities to assist access are outlined in our Accessibility Plan which you can find in the School Policies section of our website.
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.
