Equal Opportunities

At Ysgol Ty Coch we aim to recognise the diversity within our school and the community. We reflect this diversity in our resources and our approach to our school curriculum and to each student’s individual programme.

We aim to look at our own attitudes and practices in relation to race, gender, religion, class, identity, orientation and disability to define and combat any inequalities. We promote tolerance as part of our curriculum and diversity and human rights are part of the cross-cutting themes of Curriculum for Wales.

We also aim to value and draw upon the social, linguistic and cultural experiences, which the students’ bring to Ysgol Tŷ Coch.

Being a special school for students with severe and complex learning difficulties involves working alongside other professionals, therapists, parents, teachers, support staff and other schools and colleges. We aim to understand and meet appropriately the particular needs of all the students, being fully aware of their ethnic, culture, linguistic and historical backgrounds.

All pupils with a disability have equal access:  refer to the Equal Opportunities Policy.
