SEND and Inclusion

At St Barnabas CE Primary School we are committed to providing high quality education for all our pupils.  We believe in learning without limits, giving pupils the confidence to grow and fulfil their potential.  Our shared aim is to give our learners the tools and skills they need for a successful future.

We strongly believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND), have an entitlement to an inspiring, broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, and that they should be fully included in all aspects of school life.  Every teacher is a teacher of every child and we aim to help all children to succeed and remove any barriers to learning that they may have. Through carefully planned provision and high quality teaching all children receive the support they require delivered by our skilled and caring staff members.

All children who apply to St Barnabas Primary School are admitted without prejudice and in accordance with LA arrangements for providing placements for children with SEND.  Our school building is fully accessible and allows children and/or carers with disabilities to access all areas of the school.  Access points to the school building are on gently sloping surfaces and there are wide doorways.  There are two disabled toilet facilities in the school.

Should you have any concerns regarding your own child, the class teacher is always the first point of contact. However our Inclusion Team are available to offer support and can be contacted through the school office should you wish to discuss your child’s needs. The team is made up of Mrs Smith (SENDCO), Miss Sheppard (Headteacher), Miss Maddalena (SENDCO assistant) and Mrs Newbolt (family link worker).

Our provision for the children with SEND is further outlined in our School Information Report.
