Equality Act Audits
School Access Audits
Updated: Nov 9, 2020
Schools are required to have an #AccessibilityPlan. This is a statutory requirement - please see the Department For Education's guidance on statutory policies for schools. This guidance also requires that the Accessibility Plan is updated every three years.
An Accessibility Plan must take into consideration all users of the school building and services, not just the pupils. Additionally, where disabled pupils are placed at a substantial disadvantage, schools must consider whether any reasonable adjustment can be made to overcome that disadvantage. This must be done within a reasonable time and in ways which are determined after taking account of the pupil’s disabilities and any preferences expressed by them or their parents.
