Weegy: Use the school environment to promote positive attitudes to disability. [ Ensure that disability is represented in posters, collages, displays and learning materials. · Celebrate and highlight key relevant events such as the Paralympics, Deaf Awareness Week and Learning Disability Week. · Use Citizenship Education to examine what life is like for people with disabilities. These lessons include input from people with disabilities/agencies representing people with disabilities in order to teach pupils more about the problems confronting, and achievements of, people with disabilities. · An audit will be undertaken to identify what opportunities already exist within the curriculum to discuss matters to do with disability. · All staff will have a twilight training session about the Disability Equality Scheme/ promoting awareness about issues to do with disability. · When funding allows, additional resources supportive of disability equality will be purchased for the library/PSHE/Citizenship Education. ]
