At Cotham Gardens Primary School we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith, belief or religion or socio-economic background.
We strive towards ensuring all pupils feel comfortable in a safe and calm learning environment. To ensure this, positive behaviour is reinforced through praise whilst children are aware that making the wrong choice has consequences.
At Cotham Gardens, we aim to increase the extent to which pupils with disabilities can access the school curriculum. The policy outlines how we aim to improve the physical environment of the school in order to increase the extent to which pupils with disabilities are able to take advantage of education and associated services provided by the school and which allow parents and carers better access.
