Under the Equality Act 2010, education providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure disabled students are not discriminated against. The Solihull Parent Carer Forum noticed that “Reasonable Adjustments” within education settings in Solihull was an important topic to gain parental opinions on. We therefore designed a survey which attempted to do this, and 209 people decided to take part so thank-you! The results will help to inform future practice and policies within Solihull.
So far we have presented the results to the Ed SEND sub group and the SEND board and there has been considerable interest in the results from the Local Authority, Educational Psychologists, SISS, Schools and other professionals. In addition to the report, you can view a video presentation by Natasha Compton. If you’d like more information about Reasonable Adjustments you can visit the Disability Rights UK website where you’ll find a useful fact-sheet.
