Accessibility plans: audit checklists
You need to review your accessibility plan every 3 years. Read expert advice on what that means, and see examples of audit checklists from local authorities and schools.
Review your accessibility plan every 3 years
It’s a statutory requirement to have an accessibility plan.
You need to review your accessibility plan every 3 years (as explained in the DfE guidance on statutory policies for schools and academy trusts, section 7). It can be approved by:
- The governing board (or a committee), or
- An individual governor, or
- The headteacher
A review is not the same as an audit
You don’t necessarily need to conduct a new audit each time the plan is to be reviewed.
