Hi Head Teachers This probably isn't strictly the right forum, but I thought this was the nearest place where I would find an answer! My little boy has just started in Reception. I am unable to take & fetch him as I have ruptured my Achilles Tendon and mobility is really difficult. We are really lucky that my husband has been able to take time out to do the school run. However, as an ex-teacher, I think my understanding of how things work in schools is greater than his. Hence my desire to attend the 'Introduction to Life in Reception' meeting for parents in his classroom next week. Unfortunately his classroom is upstairs and there is no access other than by the stairs. Is it reasonable for me to ask the school to have the meeting in a ground floor room, such as the hall? And does the school have to comply under the DDA/Equality Act 2010? I appreciate that all rooms in the school are likely to be in use and that one group of children would need to be relocated to another room, which might be inconvenient for them. I think I have equal right to attend along with other parents, but I don't think it should be by way of shuffling up the stairs backwards on my bottom. I have to do it at home, but that is relatively private! I not sure whether technically I fit the definition of 'disabled' but the reality of it is that I am. Does anyone have experience of this kind of situation? I would appreciate your feedback.
