What is the Accessibility Strategy?
We are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for all children and young people, including those children and young people with a disability or additional support need.
An accessibility strategy has been developed for all nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools in Stirling Council. The strategy sets our plan for areas of development in meeting the individual needs of children and young people who have a disability or additional support need (ASN). The strategy will also cover the needs of parents and carers who may have a disability themselves, so that when they visit or communicate with their child’s school, they are supported to do so appropriately.
There are three areas of focus to improve over a three year period, 2015 - 2018:
- physical access for all
- communication access
- curriculum access for children and young people with a disability or ASN.
