Education Accessibility Strategy 2016

Closed 7 Oct 2016

Opened 14 Sep 2016

Overview

East Lothian Council Education Service values and respects the diverse communities it serves and has policy and guidance documents in place to promote positive attitudes and eliminate discrimination and stereotyping in all of its establishments. 

The Service has a legal duty to prepare a strategy to increase the physical accessibility of the school environment, increase the access to the curriculum and improve communication, especially in relation to the provision of school information, for those pupils who have disabilities.

Schools and nurseries must take the Accessibility Strategy into account in any management decisions and improvement planning.

Why We Are Consulting

We are about to start developing a new Accessibility Strategy and would like to gather your views on what we should include in our new action plan.

We would also like to hear about examples of good practice in East Lothian Schools and Nurseries where steps have been taken to improve accessibility.

By completing this questionnaire you will help up to prioritise what we need to do to promote positive attitudes and better access for our children and young people.

What Happens Next

These responses will be collated and analysed and used to develop the Action Plan for the next Accessibility Strategy.

Once this stage is completed a full draft of the proposed Accessibility Strategy and Action Plan will be put out for further consultation.
