Information and support for Parents

At Barton Junior School, we have high expectations of all children, staff and parents. By working and learning together, we are confident that all children are capable of our core values: aspire, believe, create. 
We are committed to providing high-quality education to all children, including any identified as having special education needs and/or a disability. We strive to make sure they are able to access a broad and balanced curriculum and to be fully included in all aspects of schoool life.
