“Alfred Salter school provides a good standard of education and care for its pupils. A significant strength of the school is its commitment to equalities. This is demonstrated through ensuring that pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities have specialist resources and provision to achieve as well as their peers and through its work on anti-bullying particularly in relation to tackling homophobia.”
* We are constantly looking at ways of improving the learning environment for our pupils * We hope that a partnership with UKPN, Network Rail will help us to: - improve access to our pond and garden, - improve our astroturf and sports area to provide new seating and a covered area for wheelchair users.
* We want to increase accessibility to the pond for wheelchair users so that they can participate in pond dipping and access more of the garden areas which can become waterlogged. * We want to make better use of this space as an environmental resource where pupils learn about conservation.
* We want to replace the rotten seating around this wonderful space and make it more useful for pupils at Alfred Salter and the local community. * We want to erect a canopy to provide shade for wheelchair users and those pupils with special medical needs that require them to stay out of the sun.
* We hope to build partnerships with organisations that share our ethos and our values. We hope these partnerships will be strong and of benefit to all parties. * A partnership with UKPN and Network Rail will be of benefit to pupils and the local community. THANK YOU
