Accessibility for All
All staff at St. Felix are aware of the different physical needs of children; this means they recognise disability issues. All barriers to learning and participation are removed and specific pupils’ needs are planned for and supported. All children are encouraged to take part in all activities and where necessary, extra support is provided to ensure all children can partake in all activities.
At St. Felix, we have two disabled toilets, located in each school building and all teaching spaces are accessible. There is a clearly marked disabled parking space within the car park and outside the school gates.
Learning environments are adapted when needed, with for example, work stations, writing slopes, Ipads and laptops. Furthermore, all teachers plan for all needs in the classroom and if necessary, in consultation with the SENDco: this may include sensory activities and use of sensory resources. An equality impact assessment is completed on school policies and recruitment.
The governing body has decided that children with special educational needs will be admitted to the school in line with school's agreed admission's policy. The school and SENDCo will work with parents and appropriate agencies to secure necessary resources and adaptations once admission has been confirmed.
