Disability & Accessibility

A Melrose Learning Trust School

We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual and emotional needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.

What we do to prevent pupils with disabilities from being treated less favourably:

At Easington C of E Primary School we are committed to establishing equality for all pupils, their parents, staff and other users of the school. We strive:

  • to provide a safe, secure, stimulating and supportive environment where each child is valued
  • to promote children’s self-confidence as learners and to help each mature socially and emotionally
  • to secure an inclusive learning environment and to support individual pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

The facilities to assist access are outlined in our Accessibility Plan which you can find in the School Policies section of our website. 

Our Accessibility Plan and the short, medium and long term actions, will be reviewed and adjusted on an annual basis and a new Accessibility Plan will be produced every three years.

The Accessibility Plan contains relevant actions to:

  • Improve access to the physical environment of the school, adding specialist facilities as necessary.
  • Increase access to the curriculum for pupils with a disability. This covers reasonable adjustments within teaching and learning, specialist aids and equipment and the wider curriculum of the school, such as after school clubs, visits etc,
  • Improve the provision of information to pupils, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities.  All information will be made available in various formats within a reasonable time frame.
