At Knowles Primary School we value the individuality of all our children. We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest standards. Following the Equality Act 2010: Schedule 10, Paragraph 3 and Disability Discrimination (prescribed Times and Periods for Accessibility Strategies and Plans for Schools) (England) Regulations, 2005, we are committed to ensuring people are not discriminated against.
The Equality Act 2010 replaced previous discrimination law and provides a single piece of legislation covering all the types of discrimination that are unlawful. Schools and Local Authorities have to carry out accessibility planning for disabled pupils.
At Knowles Primary School we aim to:
- Ensure our school is an inclusive school and actively seek to improve barriers to learning and participation, increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the curriculum
- Improve the physical environment of schools to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities and services provided, and
- Improve the availability of accessible information to disabled pupils
- Provide adequate resources for implementing such plans
