Disability and Accessibility
The Disability Discrimination Act (1995) determines that schools should publish information about arrangements for disabled pupils.
At Wootton all children are treated equally with regard to admissions whether or not they have a disability. Parents should refer to both the equality policy and the admissions policy for further details.
In order to assist accessibility in what is essentially a difficult building to modify, the school has installed a wheelchair accessible main entrance, a ramp into the class room areas and levelled the floor between class rooms. The staff toilet doubles as a disabled facility with standard accessibility fittings. There is also a portable ramp which may be positioned wherever it is needed to enable access to the lower level of the building.
Future plans for increasing disability access include assessing the need for sound loops.
Pupils for whom accessing the curriculum is difficult due to SEND are provided for through the SEND practice and procedures.
