Reasonable adjustments in schools

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is looking for case studies of schools that have made changes to support the progress of disabled and special needs children.

The organisation, which was set up to protect the rights of disabled people and other vulnerable individuals in society, is developing  an e-learning course to make school staff aware of their obligations under the Equality Act 2010.

The objective of the course, put together in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, is to increase the understanding and delivery of reasonable adjustments for disabled and special needs children, in order to support participation and attainment in all aspects of school life. 

The project is particularly emphasising engagement in sports and extra curricula activities such as after school clubs and schools trips.

BATA members have been asked to contribute any case studies that might be included as examples of best practice in the body of the course.

You may provide commercial solutions to schools, be involved in a school or have a family member benefitting from the reasonable adjustments legislation.

In the first instance please email any case studies you may have to john.lamb@bataonline.org
