How accessible is the school environment?
We aim for our school site and all provision and events to be accessible to all pupils, staff, parents, carers, approved visitors and governors. We monitor this via an audit any special requirements our community may have on entry and every three years thereafter.
In response to this audit, an action plan called the Accessibility Plan, is put in place to ensure we address any issues which prevent our community from accessing areas or events. It is reviewed by Governors annually. You can access our Accessibility Plan here: https://www.riddingsinfantandnursery.co.uk/policies/
If you experience any problems with access to Riddings Infant and Nursery School, please contact Mrs Farnsworth, HeadTeacher urgently via the school office, on 01773 602767 or at this email address email@example.com
