Making the curriculum, environment and information accessible to all students.

Aims of the accessibility plan

This plan seeks to address the statutory requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (which replaces the Disability Discrimination Act 1995) and to and outlines how The 

Charter School North Dulwich aims to improve access to education for pupils with disabilities as required by the above act.

  • Improve the physical environment of the school to enable pupils with disabilities to take better advantage of education, benefits, facilities, and services provided.

The above aims will be delivered within a reasonable timeframe, and in ways which are determined after considering pupils’ disabilities and the views of parents and pupils.

The school also recognises its responsibilities towards employees with disabilities and will:
