Disability Access Statement

 

Disability Access Statement

With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, Langdon Park School, in common with all premises offering access to the Public in England and Wales, assumed a mandatory obligation to provide easy access to all parts of its premises for people with Disabilities, wherever reasonably practicable.

The Act recognises however, that full access is not always reasonably achievable in older existing buildings, and therefore states that in these cases people with disabilities should be able to gain easy access into the premises and that the services they require should be made available to them in close proximity to their entry point.

Langdon Park School comprises of five buildings contained on one site. Access to the site can be gained during the day through our main reception entrance, four other entrances for pupils only that are opened at specific times during the school day to allow ease of drop off and pick up of pupils. The school gates can be opened for driving access if you telephone the school office. There is a designated disabled parking bay clearly marked on the school car park.

All areas and buildings of the school are fully accessible for wheelchair users.

In addition to the above, there is an accessible disabled lavatory facility in each building that is clearly signposted as such.
