Disabled Access

Lifts, ramps and disabled toilets are installed across the Folkestone All Age Academy and door widths are adequate to enable wheelchair access to all the main areas of the Academy. We also have a disabled-access minibus and a portable ramp to the staging. 

The policy of the Academy is to support recruitment and retention of students and employees with disabilities. The Academy does this by adapting the physical environment, by making support resources available and through training and career development.

The Emergency Evacuation Procedures include locating students who are unable to evacuate themselves, ensuring that they are safe and preparing to assist them to evacuate. Evac-chairs are available for these students and staff. Members of staff have been trained in their use by an outside agency. Three members of staff have now attended an Evac-chair ‘Train the Trainer’ course and this training can now take place in-house.
