On behalf of the staff and governing body of St. Barnabas C.E. Primary I am delighted to welcome you and your family to our thriving school. St. Barnabas is a truly special place to work, learn and play; the staff here are committed to giving every child the very best start to their education. We believe that every child is a unique and valued member of the community, with individual needs, talents and strengths.
Our motto is “Inspire, Nurture and Achieve” as we know that in the right environment each child can reach their full potential. We want every child to make friends, achieve well, have a wide range of interesting and exciting experiences and learn and grow in a safe, happy and stimulating setting. Christian values are at the heart of everything we do here. Children learn the values of honesty, forgiveness, justice, respect and courage in a practical and meaningful way and develop a deepening understanding of their place in the world. By providing a rich, well-structured and stimulating curriculum children cultivate their natural curiosity and a love of learning, as well as to respect and care for one another. Positive relationships, outstanding behaviour and good manners are expected and encouraged at all times.
We have high expectations for every child, actively boost self-esteem and confidence and expect our whole community to take responsibility for their words and actions in an age appropriate way. Partnership between home, school and all of our stakeholders is vital and we encourage all parents and carers to take an active part in the education of their children. Our governing body work towards setting us challenges to constantly improve and raise standards and help us ask how we can do even better for your child. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
