Disability and Accessibility

Burnside Primary School is committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all children, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual and emotional needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.

We ensure that all children are able to take part in all activities, whether in school, in lessons or extra-curricular sessions or outside of school, on trips for example. We celebrate diversity in school through assemblies, PSHE lessons and through our curriculum.

At Burnside we aim to provide a safe, stimulating, consistent and accessible service to children and their parents/carers. We always aim to provide high quality services for everyone.

The facilities to assist access are outlined in our Accessibility Plan. The date of the next review is October 2021. To view our Accessibility Plan please click here: Accessibility Plan

Our Accessibility Plan and actions will be reviewed and adjusted and a new Accessibility Plan will be produced every three years. The Accessibility Plan contains relevant actions to:

  • Improve access to the physical environment of the school, adding specialist facilities as appropriate and necessary.

  • Increase access to the curriculum for pupils with a disability. This covers reasonable adjustments within teaching and learning, specialist aids and equipment and the wider curriculum, such as after school clubs and visits etc.

  • Improve the provision of information to children, staff, parents and visitors with disabilities. All information will be made available in various formats within a reasonable time frame.  

  • Improve equality and inclusion across the school.
