Disability Access Statement

With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, Wrekin View Primary School & Nursery, 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.

Wrekin View comprises an interlinked grouping of single story buildings on one site, dating post Second World War, with one significant change in floor levels within the main building.

To meet the requirements of the legislation, Wrekin View has installed a number of ramped/level access points throughout its premises as follows:

Upper KS2 Access Door: The Y456 external access point to the building has access by way of a low gradient ramp.  (100% disabled access total)

Forest Schools Access Door: This access point is a level threshold access point to the Y456 corridor from the Forest Schools Area and Staff Car Park, and a low gradient ramp to the ICT Room giving full access the remainder of the building. (100% disabled access total)

Forest School Area & Fire Muster Point: These areas are now fully accessible, following the installation of a wheelchair low gradient ramp from the Forest School Access Door level to the field level. (100% disabled access total)

In addition to the above, there are accessible lavatory facilities at various locations within the building with the addition of an electronic table changing facility for EYFS and Y12 children (if required).
