Tottington High SchoolAccessibility Plan
Introduction to this Policy
At Tottington High School, we are committed to providing a fully accessible environment, which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their educational, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
Tottington High School plans, over time, to increase the accessibility of provision for all pupils, staff and visitors to the school. The Accessibility Plan contains relevant actions to:
- Improve access to the physical environment of the school, adding specialist facilities as necessary. This covers improvements to the physical environment of the school and physical aids to access education.
- Increase access to the curriculum for pupils with a disability, expanding the curriculum as necessary to ensure that pupils with a disability are as equally, prepared for life as others. This covers teaching, learning and the wider curriculum of the school. It also covers the provision of specialist aids and equipment, which may assist pupils in accessing the curriculum.
- Improve the delivery of written information to pupils, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities.
