BARLBY HIGH SCHOOL IS PART OF

Curriculum

We are committed to ensuring that all students fulfill their potential, are well prepared for adult life and the world of work and are able to make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which strives to meet the needs of all students of all abilities.  We believe that learning should be stimulating and enjoyable and staff employ a wide range of teaching strategies to engage and inspire students.

The progress of students is constantly monitored to ensure continued high standards of achievement and high expectation in terms of the quality of work produced. Students can access additional support through specialist teaching and a dedicated team of teaching assistants who focus on developing skills such as literacy, numeracy and science. For more able students, there are extra opportunities within and beyond the curriculum.

Special educational needs provision is located right at the heart of the school within the library.  We work with students with a wide range of additional needs including dyslexia, physical difficulties, speech, language and communication difficulties, autistic spectrum conditions, more general learning difficulties, those with rare syndromes, hearing and visual impairment and attention deficit disorders. 

The Learning Support Team works alongside each subject faculty and the Pastoral team.  Support is tailored as far as possible to each individual student’s need and is usually a combination of in-class support and access to appropriate intervention groups. Developing close, positive links with parents is vital to our successful working.  We also liaise with a range of external agencies to utilise their further expertise and to help us to overcome a student’s particular barriers to learning. The Team welcome enquiries and are more than happy to meet with you to answer any questions you may have.

At all stages, the curriculum carefully considers progression routes and ensures close links with both our primary partner schools and post-16 providers to support and enhance transition arrangements.

Our students leave with the confidence and maturity for the next stage in their lives.
