At Richard Barnes Academy, we strive to ensure that all learners receive high quality, educational provision through a broad and balanced curriculum that is relevant and appropriately differentiated.

We aim to provide learners with inclusive, positive and supporting learning experiences that promotes success and achievement in academic, social, and personal development.

All learners are assessed when they join RBA in order to identify their strengths and needs using the RBA Graduated Approach (see SEN policy for further details). Targeted support for learners is provided based on individual need following further assessment by the SEND team.

For more detail and information around our SEND provision, please see our SEND Information Report.
