Students with disabilities

At Samuel Ryder Academy we have, in consultation with the relevant expert bodies, aimed to make as much of the school accessible to those with mobility needs as possible.  However, challenges due to the building designs and site layout do remain.  Any parent wishing to know more about this and to discuss specific case needs is encouraged to contact the Headteacher.

Adjustments to increase the levels of accessibility across the school site include:-

  • Phalanges on doors.
  • Various paths and stairs widened.
  • Better parking arrangements on and off the site.
  • New doors into classroom blocks.
  • Improved signage.
  • Lift to floors 1 and 2 in the New Block.

The school plans, over time, to further increase the accessibility of provision for all students, staff and visitors to the school.  The main priorities in the school’s plan will be in the following areas:

  • Increasing the extent to which disabled students can participate in the school curriculum.
  • Improving the physical environment of the school to increase the extent to which disabled students can take advantage of education and associated services.
  • Improving the delivery of information to disabled students, staff, parents and visitors of information that is provided in writing for students and adults who are not disabled.
