The SEN and Disability Act 2001 amended Part 4 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 requires schools to plan to increase over time their accessibility for disabled pupils.
A person has a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse affect on his or her ability to carry out normal day to day activities.
The main duties are, not to treat disabled pupils less favourable and to take reasonable steps to avoid putting disabled pupils at a substantial disadvantage.
Schools are required to plan for:
Increasing access for disabled pupils to the school curriculum.
Improving access to the physical environment of schools.
Improving the delivery of written information to disabled pupils.
