Accessibility Plan for Disabled Pupils

All schools have duties under the equality act 2010 towards individual disabled children and young people. They must make reasonable adjustments to prevent them being put at a substantial disadvantage. Schools also have wider duties to prevent discrimination, to promote equality of opportunity and to foster good relations’ (Quotations taken from the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years. Published June 2014 for implementation in September 2014.)

St Bede’s is an inclusive academy and actively seeks to promote the inclusion of students with SEND. We use our best endeavours to ensure that all students with SEND and disabilities are able to fully participate in the life of the school, both in their learning and in the wider provision and life of the school. Adaptations and provisions are made for SEND and disabled students to enable them to participate in all school trips and other out of class activities. This includes wheelchair access, use of lifts and disabled toilets. Please see our accessibility plan.

Students with SEND are actively encouraged, supported and given opportunities to become involved with extra-curricular activities. For example, current students with SEND have been involved in all clubs. SEND students have also participated in Year 6 transition support and in the annual school production.
