Special Educational Needs 

At St. Barnabas we aim to provide all children with the support they need to flourish at school.  Some children may require additional support from support staff to help them with this journey or might require adaptations made to the curriculum or environment that they are working in.  We believe in a close collaboration between parents, carers and staff to ensure all children reach their potential.

 

Special Educational Needs Coordinator: Miss Harriet Fitzsimmons can  be contacted by email on h.fitzsimmons@stbarnabas.pdet.org.uk or by telephoning 01933 445900.

Disabled Access

St Barnabas Church of England School is committed to ensuring that all stakeholders are able to access our facilities.  

Parking is available on site on arrangement with the school office.  There are ramps into the main reception area and access to all the classrooms and to the school hall via a back entrance.  If you require any further assistance while visiting our school please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

 

Complaints about SEND provision

We urge parents/carers with any concerns regarding the SEND policy or the provision made for their child to speak to the school as soon as possible and, in the first instance, to the class teacher or the SENCo.  If parents/carers feel their child's needs are still not being met they should make an appointment to see the Headteacher.  If concerns are still unresolved parents/carers may wish to engage with PDET's Complaints Policy procedures.

 

Please note that any issue relating to statutory SEN assessments should be pursued with the relevant Local Authority and not via PDET's Complaints policy.
