Our Ethos and Approach to Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Barcombe CE School 

At Barcombe CE Primary, we are passionate about inclusion. We pride ourselves in creating an Inclusive learning environment and providing appropriate provision for all children to succeed. Class teachers are responsible for the learning and progress of all children in their class. This entails meeting children’s needs through quality first teaching, personalised planning and resourcing and differentiation through levels of support, expectations of outcome, resources or activity. 

To read more about what this looks like in our school, please read our SEND Information Report and SEND policy on this page.

Our SENCo Mrs Williams is undertaking the National SENCo Award (Postgraduate Diploma in Special and Inclusive Education). She works closely with our committed staff team and specialist services to ensure that children get the academic and pastoral support they need to reach their full potential.

Please read our SEN Information Report and SEND policy, and if you would like more information. Please contact Mrs Williams at bpsenco@skylarkfed.education  

Mrs Williams works 2 days per week as our SENCo, so for urgent queries please contact the Head of School Ms Manners via the office.
