How do we increase disabled pupils’ ability to participate in curriculum?
We provide games as well as PE, which is easier to access.

We provide TA support to students who cannot scribe/read/hear.
We ensure that quality first teaching has differentiation throughout for all types of learners with all needs.
Our curriculum is not dependant upon a specific skill set, but broad and balanced (expressive arts, performing arts, core, STEM and humanities) accessible to all. Our extra-curricular offer also ensures breadth and depth so that all learners with all needs can access it.
