Welcome to our Accessibility Page
Schools are required under the Equality Act 2010 to have an accessibility plan. The purpose of the plan is to
- Increase the extent to which pupils with disabilities can participate in the curriculum
- Improve the physical environment of the school to enable disabled pupils to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities and services provided
- Improve the availability of accessible information for pupils with disabilities
Eastbury Primary School aims to treat all its pupils fairly and with respect. This involves providing access and opportunities for all pupils without discrimination of any kind.
We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents/carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race, socio-economic background, religion and disability and promotes an understanding of cultural and physical diversity and challenges stereotypes.
This policy is important to all aspects of school practice, including planning and monitoring, organisation, staffing and the selection of resources. Central to this is the professional commitment and developing awareness of staff, and the quality of their interactions with all children and with each other.
The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender and disability and we will use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Eastbury Primary School, we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
We believe that every individual who comes to Eastbury Primary School has the right to be free from discrimination.
The plan will be made available online on the school website, and paper copies are available upon request.
Our school is also committed to ensuring staff are trained in equality issues with reference to the Equality Act 2010.
Our school supports any available partnerships to develop and implement the plan and we will work the local authority to support the implementation of this plan.
