We recognise our duty under the Equality Act 2010. This act has simplified and strengthened the discrimination laws which protect people from unfair treatment.
With regard to the curriculum, our plan covers all three main strands of the planning duty:
1. Improving the physical environment of school for the purpose of increasing the extent to which disabled students are able to take advantage of education and associated services.
Currently at Meadowhead School all students can access the curriculum regardless of disability. The school is a purpose built building which has taken into account the need for access to all.
2. Increase the extent to which disabled students can participate in schools’ curriculums.
The curriculum is carefully designed to meet the needs of all learners and all students access a broad and varied curriculum.
3. Improving the delivery of information to students with disabilities.
Any students requiring additional support are clearly identified on entry to Meadowhead School.
For full details of the above and for more information (including 'How our school delivers the curriculum/How the school is designed to meet the needs of all pupils/How the school delivers materials in other formats') please view our Accessibility Plan below.
