Available Disability Support
Adjustments to formal timed examinations, including extra time, readers and scribes, and use of computers and rest breaks (subject to receiving appropriate evidence of disability).
Digital recorders for loan to enable your child to record their teaching sessions, alongside assistance in the library to navigate colour-coded subject areas, accessible spine labels and assistance if they are unable to access the shelving systems.
An individualised disability/SpLD action plan giving teaching, professional service staff, and placement providers an overview of the impact of your child’s disability/SpLD, detailing the adjustments they may require. This is shared with your child's consent. These adjustments will be adjusted depending on your child's needs to become an independent learner and boos employability skills.
Access to a range of non-medical help services including practical support, note-taking, specialist mentoring and study skills. To access these services your child will need to have applied for Disabled Students Allowance through their funding body. We can also assist them with this process, if required. If they are not able to access funding, specialist staff will aim to award internal funding.
All of our campuses have accessible learning and teaching spaces alongside adapted residential accommodation. Our aim is to have all our teaching and learning spaces fully accessible and with classroom technology to support any disability.
Assistance with access to additional allowances such as Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs), which cover some of the costs of additional support.
