a better education for visually impaired children



A request under the Freedom of Information Act to Richmond Borough Council for a list of mainstream primary and secondary schools in the borough with facilities for the visually impaired drew the following response:

In essence all schools have facilities for children with a visual impairment. Once this team is involved the school will get on going support and this includes an environmental assessment. Advice is given on appropriate changes to the physical environment and schools then request for financial support through the appropriate agencies. With regard to people support and technical support again this team advice and offer on going support.

The only schools that have not been visited by this service are Kew Riverside, Marshgate, St Maryís Juniorís,
