We strongly encourage you to let us know if you have any of the above impairments or disabilities as it enables us to discuss with you, agree and implement any support that you may require.
We will only discuss disability-related information with other members of staff once you have given us permission, or if we need to do this for reasons of health and safety, emergency or public policy. Before we put support in place we ask for your consent to pass on information to those who need to know so that they can provide your support.
