Greenland Community Primary School is committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all children, 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.
We ensure that all children are able to take part in all activities, whether in school, in lessons or extra curricular sessions or outside of school, on trips for example. We celebrate diversity in school through assemblies, PSHE lessons and through our curriculum.
At Greenland we aim to provide a safe, stimulating, consistent and accessible service to children and their parents/carers. We always aim to provide high quality services for everyone, but accept that sometimes things do not always go to plan. In such circumstances, we want to know so that we can put them right and learn from any mistakes. In the first instance parents/carers are encouraged to speak to the relevant member of staff, if deemed appropriate. If not, the Head Teacher should be contacted and they will try to resolve the problem. Further information about how to do this is included within Greenland Community Primary School Complaints Policy available within the Policies section: Complaints Policy (Sept 2018-19)
The facilities to assist access are outlined in our Accessibility Plan which is reviewed annually. The date of the next review is September 2019. To view our Accessibility Plan please click here: Accessibility Plan (Sept 2018-19).
Our Accessibility Plan and actions will be reviewed and adjusted annually 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 appropriate and 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, such as after school clubs and visits etc.
- Improve the provision of information to children, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities. All information will be made available in various formats within a reasonable time frame.
- Improve equality and inclusion across the school.
