Welcome to St. Barnabas C.E. Primary School

Statement of Intent

Our intention is that our Science curriculum extends opportunity, raises aspiration, opens children’s eyes to the world beyond their immediate environment and enables every child to live a happy, healthy and productive life.

We provide first hand learning experiences that allow all children to develop interpersonal skills and build resilience. Our cross-curricular approach enables our children to make meaningful links with their learning.  We aim to encourage a growth mindset in every child as it is often through mistakes we learn the most. 

Our curriculum is focused on the development of children’s knowledge and skills across all primary subjects with the aim of ensuring pupils are ready for the next stage of their learning. Families are key partners in developing children’s attitudes, knowledge, skills and experiences.
