Reasonable adjustments at school

There will be times when school leaders may, or will, need to make reasonable adjustments to enable a member of staff with an impairment (permanent or temporary) to work effectively, albeit under an adjusted set of arrangements.

This guide will help you to understand what reasonable adjustments are, when you will need to consider them and how best to put such arrangements in place.

There is both a legal duty (under the Equality Act 2010) and a moral imperative (a duty of care) to consider making reasonable adjustments to the workplace or a staff member's working arrangements; however, adjustments only need be reasonable and need not cost the earth. ​​
