Oaklands at Barley Croft is a unique Local Authority venture creating a ground breaking partnership between Oaklands Special School and Barley Croft Primary School.
Our new satellite provision, Oaklands at Barley Croft (O@BC), provides places for up to 10 children with Communication and Interaction difficulties, which may include a diagnosis of Autism and sensory processing difficulties. These children are taught by Oaklands NAS accredited specialist staff, using the pedagogies and practices that best meet their needs, whilst giving them access to the wealth of wonderful experiences enjoyed by the children and wider community of Barley Croft Primary School.
Parents who may be interested in their child attending Oaklands at Barley Croft will need to speak to their current school SENCO in the first instance. Only children with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) can be admitted to O@BC.
Such a partnership has never been brokered by the Local Authority before and we are excited to be working together in such an innovative way.
