Accessibility Plans as effective tools for inclusion in schools: are they working? Report launch!

My new research project report, produced on behalf of the Alliance for Inclusive Education (ALLFIE) and funded by ‘Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning (DRILL)’, highlights shocking impact on Disabled pupils of schools’ failures around Accessibility Plans and equality of access.
