School Disability Equality Schemes

Volume 460: debated on Wednesday 9 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many secondary schools have published their disability equality schemes in accordance with the deadline of 4 December 2006. (116826)

This information is not collected centrally. However, to support schools in meeting this new responsibility, in June 2006 the Department for Education and Skills published a training resource for schools and local authorities: ‘Implementing the Disability Discrimination Act in schools and early years settings’. The materials in this resource will help schools meet their duties under the Disability Discrimination Acts 1995 and 2005.
