Equality and Accessibility
‘All schools have duties under the equality act 2010 towards individual disabled children and young people. They must make reasonable adjustments to prevent them being put at a substantial disadvantage. Schools also have wider duties to prevent discrimination, to promote equality of opportunity and to foster good relations.’ (Quotations taken from the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years. Published June 2014 for implementation in January 2015.)
Parkside Academy is an inclusive school and actively seeks to promote the inclusion of students with SEND and disabilities. We use our best endeavours to ensure that all students with SEND and disabilities are able to fully participate in the life of the school, both in their learning and in the wider provision and life of the school.
Students with SEND are actively encouraged, supported and given opportunities to become involved with extra-curricular activities.
