The school has an Accessibility Plan to identify a number of specific issues to ensure that students with disabilities can access the curriculum (Planning Duty 1), the physical environment (Planning Duty 2) and information (Planning Duty 3) on an equal basis with their peers.
There are two disabled parking spaces immediately outside school’s reception. There are a number of lifts in the building to enable access to the first floor in a number of our buildings. However, not all parts of the building are fully accessible by lift. There are also disabled toilets all located on the ground floor by the school reception, in the Flexible Learning Centre and in Design & Technology.
The school recognises its responsibilities towards employees with disabilities and makes sure that
- Recruitment procedures ensure persons with disabilities are provided with equal opportunities
- Employees are supported with special provision to ensure that they can work effectively without barriers
- Reasonable adjustments are made to enable staff to access the workplace
