Disability Access Statement
With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, St Paul's Primary 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.
St Paul's is a two storey building with most classes on the ground floor. It is an old building. Access throughout the building has been considered for disability needs; all doorways and all halls are wide to allow mobility chair access. A lift in the new building minimises travel for children and adults with mobility needs from the ground floor to the only first floor classroom.
Fire Muster Point: These areas are fully accessible.
