RBA is an inclusive school and the Learning Support Department works in collaboration with other Departments in the school to offer support to students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).  

As a school we are committed to the belief that every child is an individual who brings something special to the school community.  All students, regardless of ability, background or ethnicity, have the right to participate in and enjoy all aspects of school life, and have the opportunity to meet their full potential.

Admissions to RBA, including for students with education, health and care plans, disabilities and Looked after Children, are handled by the Local Education Authority.  A copy of our Admissions Policy can be found on the school website. 

The SEND Information Report below explains our approach to supporting students with SEND and how students access any additional help that they need.

SEND Information Report

RBA aims to treat all its students fairly and with respect. This involves providing access and opportunities for all students without discrimination of any kind. Our principles and vales which relate to equality and inclusion are outlined in this Accessibility Plan which can be reviewed here Accessibility

Students with disabilities

At Robert Barclay Academy we have, in consultation with the relevant expert bodies, aimed to make as much of the school accessible to those with mobility needs as possible.  However, challenges due to the building designs and site layout do remain.  Any parent wishing to know more about this and to discuss specific case needs is encouraged to contact the Headteacher.

Adjustments to increase the levels of accessibility across the school site include:-

  • Better parking arrangements on and off the site.
  • Improved signage.

The school plans, over time, to further increase the accessibility of provision for all students, staff and visitors to the school.  The main priorities in the school’s plan will be in the following areas:

  • Increasing the extent to which disabled students can participate in the school curriculum.
  • Improving the physical environment of the school to increase the extent to which disabled students can take advantage of education and associated services.
  • Improving the delivery of information to disabled students, staff, parents and visitors of information that is provided in writing for students and adults who are not disabled.
