Disability Access Statement
With the introduction of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in October 2005, Downham Feoffees Primary Academy, in common with all premises offering access to the Public in England and Wales, assumed a mandatory obligation to provide easy access to all parts of its premises for people with Disabilities, wherever reasonably practicable. Downham Feoffees is a single story building on one site, with no significant change in floor levels within the main building. The mobile on the school site has a ramp which leads to a door wide enough for wheel chair access.
To meet the requirements of the legislation, Downham Feoffees has ensured a number of ramped/level access points throughout its premises as follows:
  • Reception: The reception external access point to the building is all on one level.
  • School Carpark: There is a ramp from the carpark to the path leading to the front entrance. The space in front of the ramp should be kept clear.
  • School Hall: There is a slight ramp leading from the carpark to the hall. This enables easy access for anyone requiring entry to the hall.
In addition to the above, there are accessible lavatory facilities near the hall with the addition of an electronic table changing facility for EYFS and YEAR 1/2 children (if required).
