Disability Access

Disability Access

We are determined to be an inclusive school.

There is full wheelchair access to the City of Derby Academy, in compliance with building regulations.

The Academy does not have specialist teaching facilities for pupils with disability, with the exception of learning difficulties such as mild dyslexia or dysphraxia.

We are able to make provision for pupils with mild autism or ADHD, but again, do not have specialist facilities. There is no Local Authority plan to develop any specialism related to disability at the City of Derby Academy.

All staff are made aware of individual pupils' particular needs and are given advice and support in teaching materials and styles to help them meet these needs.  Medical support is also made available where necessary and appropriate.

Every effort is made to ensure that pupils with a disability are able to take a full and active part in our Academy life.

The Academy can provide a copy of its Disability Equality policy upon request - please contact the main office on 01332 270450.
