Special Education Needs

Barrs Court School aims to create a welcoming, caring environment in which the educational and therapeutic needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities can be addressed effectively. We work in partnership with other key players in the field of SEN and endeavour to keep abreast of national initiatives to ensure that the school’s specialist facilities, staff expertise, and other SEN related provisions are of the highest quality possible so all pupils may benefit from equality of opportunity, regardless of the degree of their personal disability. Barrs Court will strive towards recognition as a national centre of excellence and enable our pupils to benefit from a learning environment that is safe, relevant, inclusive and purposefully creative and enjoyable.
