Additional Support Needs/Accessibility Strategy

In order for all pupils to achieve their maximum potential, they will be presented with a curriculum appropriate to their needs.

The school has a duty to ensure that all our pupils have equal access to the curriculum, supported as appropriate to their individual needs.  This covers not only the content of lessons and teaching strategies but also minor adaptations to the physical environment of our buildings to address the needs of pupils with physical or sensory impairments, including the relocation of classes to the ground floor where feasible.  We also need to ensure that parents and carers who have a disability have equal access to information about their children.  This will involve, for example, relocating the venue for parents/guardians meetings to facilitate physical access; provision of an interpreter for deaf people; agreeing a phone contact system to provide direct feedback to parents and carers.
At Broomhill, ramps and handrails are available to access the main entrances of both buildings.  There is a stair lift to the first floor of the Main building. The annexe is single storey. Parents/carers experiencing access difficulties will always be catered for and should contact the school in advance so that suitable arrangements can be made.
Annual staff development ensures that all staff are fully briefed on the Disability Awareness Pack and the Supporting Inclusion documentation.
