Facilities for students with disabilities

Don Valley Academy caters for every student within its care. The Academy is a newly built building (completed in 2016) and benefits from specialised facilities including disabled toilets, shower facilities and a lift. All areas of the Academy are accessible for wheelchair users.

The Academy works closely with outside agencies such as Doncaster’s Hearing and Visual Impairment Service to ensure that students with additional needs are catered for. Information ordinarily accessible to all students is available in alternative formats (eg Braille) on request. The Academy works with all services detailed in Doncaster’s ‘Local Offer’ to ensure that students’ needs are met.

The Academy will provide reasonable adjustments to allow students to take part in the full Academy experience such as enrichment activities and extra curriculum activities and visits. This could include access to alternative transport and additional adult support. Detailed information is included in the Academy’s SEND Policy and Doncaster’s Local Offer.

If you require any further advice or support, please contact Julia Nicholls at the Academy.
