At Meadlands, we are commited to treating all children and adults fairly and with respect. This includes providing an accessible environment which values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors - regardless of their social, emotional, educational, physical or cultural needs. We recognise that one size does not fit all; two people with a similar disability won't necessarily have the same experiences or need the same adaptations. We are commited to challenging negative perceptions or and attitudes towards disability and accessibility, and to developing a culture of awareness, kindness and inclusion.

Disability and Access Guide for Meadlands
Meadlands welcomes all visitors and we aim to ensure that everyone has a stress-free and enjoyable experience during their time here. Here are some tips about travelling to our school, getting around, and making the most of your visit when you arrive.
We want you to enjoy your visit to Meadlands. If there is anything we can do to help with information and planning ahead of your visit, please call us on 0208 940 9207 or email firstname.lastname@example.org - and our office team or SENDCo, Miss Bunker, will be happy to help you.
Getting here by public transport
Both Richmond Station and Kingston Station are served by National Rail and are a bus ride away from the school. Information about accessibility at these stations can be found on the Accessable website. Richmond Station is likely to provide the easiest access, with a lift to street-level, level access to the pavement from the station concourse, and the correct bus stop directly outside the station. The 371 bus (in the direction of Kingston) will take you to Mariner Gardens - a bus stop very near to the school.
Parking at Meadlands
We have one disabled car parking space and we are more than happy to reserve you additional spaces if this is something that you need. Please note parking on the streets adjacent to school is also free.
Getting around Meadlands
Meadlands is largely accessible to wheelchair users, with flat or ramped floor access into the building. The outdoor areas are largely flat with tarmac paths in most places.
There is an accessible toilet facility just off the central corridor in the school.
Our school hall, where lunch is served, is fully accessible.
