Accessibility Plan for Schools

Our Process

Your school will be visited by us at a time and date agreed. The length of time the audit takes depends on the size of your school, however we will be discreet to ensure not to disrupt the school day and classes.

Our auditors are all ex Headteachers who have an in-depth knowledge of how schools operate. Each has a CRB certificate and these will be shown at reception with photographic ID.

Many companies are qualified to perform an access audit of a building, following a checklist, such as the ones which can be found on the internet. These checklists usually refer to any building and are not bespoke for schools. We are the only company in the UK specialising in performing access audits for schools and writing accessibility plans.

There are 3 areas to concentrate on when preparing an Access Audit / Accessibility Plan for a school. Focusing on 'reasonable adjustments' that can be made in order to make your school more accessible, your Access Audit will cover:
