Accessibility Strategy 2018-2021

The Council is required under the Equality Act 2010 to have an accessibility strategy in which it promotes better access for disabled pupils at school.

This duty predates the Children and Families Act which means that the activities to ensure effective and timely support for pupils with disabilities are now embedded in the area’s multi-agency SEND Strategy. However, in compliance with the Local Authority’s statutory duty, it has published this Accessibility Strategy.
