Admission arrangements for pupils with disabilities

Children are admitted to Fulfen Primary School according to our Admissions Policy. The admission of pupils with disabilities is the same as those applied to pupils without disabilities. The school fully complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the School Admissions Code in relation to the arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils. Where the school is oversubscribed, all children are admitted in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria. Where a child is disabled the school will make reasonable adjustments to ensure that no disabled child is placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to the other pupils.
Parents and carers of children with disabilities are advised to speak to us prior to admission to discuss any reasonable adjustments required so we can plan accordingly.
