Welcome to our School

Barndale House School is an all age special school for pupils aged between 2 and 19 years with a diversity of learning difficulties.

Our curriculum is balanced, broadly based and enables all young people to become:

  • successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • confident learners who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

Our Aims are to:

  • enable pupils to interact and communicate with a wide range of people
  • enable pupils to express preferences, communicate needs, make choices, make decisions and choose options that other people act on and respect
  • promote self-advocacy or the use of a range of systems of supported advocacy
  • prepare pupils for an adult life in which they have the greatest possible degree of autonomy and support them in having relationships with mutual respect and dependence on each other
  • increase pupils’ awareness and understanding of their environment and of the world
  • encourage pupils to explore, to question and to challenge
  • provide a wide range of learning experiences for pupils in each key stage suitable for their age.
