Access facilities for pupils with SEND

Handford Hall school site is fully accessible to all. We are able to meet the needs of children with physical disabilities as we are a single site school. Entrance to the building is through the main playground entrances. Where entrances are not level a ramp is accessible. Fire exits are also suitable for wheelchair access. The playground areas also have seating arrangements. Access to classrooms is by corridors which are all on the same level. All other specialist areas are on the one level. There is an accessible toilet. We have made sure that there are good lighting and safety arrangements for any visually impaired pupils. Our classrooms provide good acoustic conditions so that the effects of hearing difficulties are minimised (carpeting, blinds/curtains). Pupils requiring equipment due to impairment will be assessed in order to gain the support that they require.Our Accessibility Plan was amended in July 2014; please see link. Also, Steve Giddings Environmental Officer visited Handford Hall Primary School to conduct a sensory audit in June 2014.

To help pupils access their learning we provide additional resources. These include:

Writing slopes

Pencil grips

Grip rulers


Long-loop scissors


Coloured exercise books

Hand rails

Supportive seating

i-visualiser to support visual impairment

Individual visual timetables

Break Stations


As well as the resources mentioned above, we work closely with outside agencies to purchase any recommended support materials suggested to us. We are fully committed to improving learning experiences for children.
