Special Educational Needs and Disabilities



Our vision for SEND Provision
At Barkston Ash Roman Catholic Primary School, we believe that every pupil, regardless of gender, race or disability, has a right to equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum. We consider it essential that the curriculum is presented in a supportive and stimulating atmosphere, which values each child and encourages them to achieve their full potential.
