It’s unlawful for an education provider to treat disabled students less favourably compared to other students. At Tees we will help ensure that your child has equal access to education and the provision of services.
The Equality Act 2010 makes it illegal to discriminate against a pupil on the grounds of their disability and schools must ensure all pupils have equal access to their provision. However, despite this legal protection, some parents feel their children are not getting access to the education that they have a right to – enshrined by law.
If you feel your child is not being given access to educational services due to a disability we can help you by:
The Equality Act, covers everything a school must do to make sure a child has equal access to the education. This includes removing obstacles, making adjustments to facilities or policies and providing additional staff to support the child. The law says that reasonable adjustments should be made by the school.
