Accessibility Strategy for Schools

Name
Early Help and Schools Accessibility Strategy
Summary

​Rochdale Borough Council​ has a duty to plan strategically so that the accessibility of its schools and other provision increases over time. Schools share this duty as ‘responsible bodies’ and have a duty to prepare an accessibility plan which will explain how they will increase accessibility.

Although the core of accessibility is about how pupils can access what is happening in schools, the teaching and learning that is available, it is also about access to the whole social and out of school curriculum. ​This means that all aspects of a school’s work need to be considered in terms of their accessibility for those with a disability, given the close involvement of parents in their children’s education and parental accessibility.
