At Castle Academy, we are aware that we have a general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to:
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under this Act
- Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
- Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
With this in mind an Accessibility Plan has been drawn up in consultation with pupils, parents, staff and governors of the school and covers the period from September 2015 – August 2017.
We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their age, disability, gender, gender-identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
Our Equality and Accessibility Plan is based upon our current cohort. We will respond to additional needs of individuals that arrive as soon as, or before they are admitted.
