Arrangements for Disabled Pupils
Parents of disabled children are asked to give the Headteacher details of the disability as soon as they are offered a place at the school. The Headteacher will arrange a meeting at a mutually convenient time to discuss the ways in which the child’s disability might hinder her/him from taking a full part in the life of the school and the ways in which such difficulties will be overcome.
The Headteacher will than make any arrangements necessary to enable the child to participate fully in all lessons and activities. These arrangements may include briefing staff, obtaining special equipment, making minor adaptations to the building, rearranging classroom furniture and/or employing support staff. These may take time to put into place and may require advice and assistance from the Area Education Office or specialist agencies, so parents are urged to see the Headteacher as soon as possible so that everything can be ready for the child’s first day at school.
Unfortunately there is limited access for wheelchairs in this old building. The school is, therefore, unable to admit pupils who must spend all their time in a wheelchair.
