Accessibility Planning

In addition to making reasonable adjustments for individual children and young people, all schools must have an accessibility plan. This is a strategic plan which shows how the school intends to improve accessibility for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities over time. The plan must be published and should show how the school will:

  • improve the physical environment
  • make improvements to the provision of information
  • increase access to the curriculum

Plans must be kept under review and revised where necessary to ensure they meet the needs of children and young people in the setting.
