- All schools must ensure that anyone with a disability is treated equally. In this programme Andy Beckett, a senior SEN adviser at National Strategies, explains what the equality laws mean in practice. Schools have three main duties to ensure all pupils have the equal educational opportunities and the same chance to participate in school life: firstly, not to discriminate against any child; secondly, to make reasonable adjustments to so the curriculum accessible by all; and thirdly, to provide plans to show how they intend to improve accessibility even if they do not have any pupils with a disability. Andy urges schools to draw up its policies and plans in conjunction with disabled pupils and groups in the community. There are four other programmes in the series that look at different aspects of the disability equality laws.
