Education

Barford education caters for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties who have found it difficult to achieve their full potential in the mainstream sector.

We are very aware of the range of issues that causes many young people to become disaffected with school.

Ofsted Outstanding

The education environment and the curriculum are both highly structured. Our focus is to provide clear opportunities to succeed and the full national curriculum is offered up to GCSE level.

Education is part of an integrated package of services including care and therapy for children placed in our care. Although about one third of children placed are able to attend mainstream schools or colleges, Barford offers education for those children who find it too difficult to access mainstream provision.

We have high expectations for academic attainment development for skills of behavioural management, socialisation, emotional resilience and independence.
