At Barley Fields Primary School, we pride ourselves on providing a stimulating, nurturing and inclusive environment for our children to learn in. Our child-centred approach and desire to see children flourish is at the heart of everything we do. We strive to build strong relationships between children, families and professionals and believe that effective communication is a driving force to achieving positive outcomes and learning success. We are committed to working in partnership with all members of our school community and work collaboratively with a range of outside agencies to offer the best possible opportunities for our children.
We believe that all children have an equal right to a quality education that enables them to develop their personal, social and intellectual potential. We have a commitment to high standards and understand that our classroom practice should continually evolve to meet the needs of all learners.
Our central aim is that all children:
- become confident individuals living fulfilling lives as independently as possible;
- achieve their best;
- understand that learning is a life-long journey and overcoming challenge is part of the learning process;
- make a successful transition throughout their education and into adulthood;
Occasionally, children experience difficulties with learning or struggle with aspects of their general progress and development. These children may have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Difficulties which may affect:
- Communication and Interaction Difficulties;
- Cognition and Learning Difficulties;
- Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties;
- Sensory/and or Physical Needs;
All SEND provision in our school is coordinated by a team of ‘Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinators’ (SENDCos). The SEND team liaise with parents, teaching staff and outside agencies to ensure the needs of individual children are met. These roles are assigned to:
- Miss R Johnson NASENCo Qualification – Early Years and Key Stage 1
- Mrs C Shildrick – Lower and Upper Key Stage 2
