Barnsley Academy is a fully inclusive school. Our aim is to ensure that every student fulfills their academic and social potential, regardless of need. The academy follows the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) code of practice (2014) which promotes a positive learning environment where all students have access to high quality teaching and learning.
- All children and young people are valued equally and have the right to learn, achieve and participate fully in education and in the wider community regardless of their abilities and behaviours
- All children and young people are empowered so that their voice is heard and heeded in decisions made about themselves
- All parents and carers are partners in meeting the needs of their children
- All children and young people are entitled to have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that is differentiated to meet individual learning styles, recognising personal strengths and needs
- The diversity of the needs of children and young people is recognised and met through a range of flexible, responsive and varied provision
