Our School strives to create an accessible and inclusive curriculum and learning environment.
Accessibility refers to the process of creating an accessible, inclusive curriculum and enabling environment for all students, including those with any of the protected characteristics under the Equalities Act 2010, which includes age, gender, marital status, race, religion, sexual orientation and those with disabilities. The term 'disabilities' is used broadly and includes mobility and sensory impairments, specific learning difficulties, mental health problems, autism spectrum conditions and unseen or medical conditions.
The Accessible Learning approach aims to anticipate student needs and to create programmes that are 'accessible by design' to all students. The issues of accessibility inform the work of the School in all its aspects: in approaches to teaching students, in the teaching content of a range of courses, and in academic research.
