SCIENCE teacher Paul Bullamore (above) uses a three-wheeled bicycle to get around the campus of Hemsworth Arts and Community College, near Pontefract, West Yorkshire.
He has worked there since 1970, but suffered a head injury and brain damage during a rugby match in 1974 which has affected his walking. Mr Bullamore, 53, has all his classes timetabled in the same room, so he does not have to move between classes.
His room is also the one nearest the doors, lift and disabled toilets in the science block. He was consulted when the school built a new science block in 1996.
"My bosses have taken my advice on adaptations and alterations," he says. "Disabled awareness is a priority. For instance, there is a slope rather than steps, the doors are large to allow wheelchair access, the disabled toilets are on the ground floor and there is a lift to the next floor.
"If the staff and management are pro-active, the cost is minimal and the benefits are tremendous."
