All North Yorkshire Schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and are supported by the Local Authority to ensure that all pupils, whatever their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. The Local Authority have published their Local Offer for parents and carers of children who have Special Education Needs or a disability (SEND) and all those who support children with additional needs. This can be found at:
What does Dishforth Church of England Primary offer to meet the needs of pupils with SEND?

At Dishforth Church of England Primary School we are aware that we have a general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to:
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under this Act
- Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
- Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
With this in mind, our Accessibility Plan has been drawn up to show our commitment to providing a fully accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their age, education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to challenging negative attitudes about disability and accessibility and to developing a culture of awareness, tolerance and inclusion.
