Cambridgeshire's Early Years Funding Scheme

Under the Government's Early Years funding scheme, all four year olds are entitled to three terms of free part-time education from the term following their fourth birthday. This is funded by a grant for each child. The Local Authority funds places in reception classes in state schools in addition to the grant, to permit children to attend for a full school day. To ensure that your child receives their allocation of five sessions of grant-funded education, you will be required to complete a form confirming that you have registered your child at Barton School. A leaflet containing further information is available from the school office.


Admission Arrangements for Disabled Pupils

Our school aims to be an inclusive school. We hope to make all our children welcome and feel happy to look forward to their school day. Every child is different and we view differences as an opportunity for adults and children alike to learn more about ourselves.

If your child has a disability he or she will be treated equally to other applicants for admission. Prior to admission there will normally be a discussion between the parents, the Head Teacher and advisers to determine what needs there may be. Barton School recognises its duties under the Disability Discrimination Act 2005, and the governors’ intention is that the needs of all pupils are identified and met as soon as possible. We have completed measures to increase access to the school by pupils with disabilities; our school is all on one ground-floor level and the main entrances and the Early Years classroom and hall have ramp access. There are toilet facilities for disabled children.

In our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) information report, which is a statutory requirement, we have details of how all children are integrated into our school, whatever their needs. Please see the Report below.
