Arrangements for the admission of pupils with disabilities and SEN

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 defines a disabled person as one who has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a persons ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.


Most children with Special Needs will not be disabled within the meaning of the Act. The admission of pupils with disabilities is considered in the first instance in the same way as non-disabled pupils.


Further considerations are made in the light of need and accessibility. It is the school's approach to accommodate pupils with disabilities should parents wish and individual needs are planned for to prevent any pupils being treated less favourably than other pupils. In practice we ensure that classroom and extra curricular activities encourage the participation of all pupils, including those categorised as having Special Educational Needs. Staff organise human and physical resources within the school to increase access to learning and participation by all pupils. 


If your child has a disability of special educational need and you wish to access a place at Kilnhurst Primary, please contact us to discuss your child's needs. We will be happy to chat, advise and support.


Please see our Accessibility Policy and Plan in the Policies Section for more info.
