The Equality Act 2010 requires providers to make sure they do not discriminate on the grounds of disability. This includes admissions. It means providers must take reasonable steps to make sure children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) can take part in their activities. They should make extra considerations to safeguard these children.
“Being able to access after-school clubs, tuition and community activities is vital for children with special educational needs or a disability. They can help with:
- social engagement
- physical development
- the growth of other important life skills”
