Newcastle City Council's Accessibility Strategy

Newcastle City Council's Accessibility Strategy

Improving access to education and educational achievement for disabled pupils is essential to ensure equality of opportunity, full participation in society, access to employment opportunities and inclusion within mainstream education

This strategy will promote a cohesive, integrated approach to inclusive, accessible education for all children and young people.

Newcastle City Council’s four key priorities:

  • Working City
  • Tackling Inequalities
  • Decent Neighbourhoods
  • Fit for Purpose

Newcastle City Council and its partner organisations believe that all children and young people have the right to live and learn in a socially inclusive community. This is a community in which no child, young person, family or group should experience barriers that prevent their full participation in the social, economic, political and cultural life of the community.
