The Governing Body recognises the importance of making the school accessible to all, both in the curriculum and, where possible, in all areas of the school premises and facilities.
The school was built in 1961 and subsequent building work has been undertaken to provide physical access, where possible, including the installation of kerbs, ramps and disabled toilets.
For every pupil, access is available to all areas of the ground floor. The office is a more challenging place to reach as it involves three steps down to a lower level, but access can be made via the reception classroom which means avoiding the steps. One upstairs classroom (the booster room), used for one-to one or small group teaching, can only be accessed by non-disabled pupils, but any requirement for disabled pupils to take part in one-to-one teaching or small group classes is accommodated on the ground floor. The school will continue to respond to the changing needs of pupils, as necessary.
Parental access is available to all areas of the ground floor (including access to the school office via the Reception classroom). There is no requirement for parental access to any part of the school located on the first floor.
The main staff room is located upstairs and there is currently no requirement for disabled access to this area. Facilities available in the staff room are replicated in and around the school office. However, if there is a future need to make disabled access to the staff room, the school will work with Bucks CC to review and implement this requirement, where possible.
In conjunction with Bucks CC, the school will work to ensure that all future building and refurbishment plans take account of providing suitable access.
