A very warm welcome to St Barnabas & St Paul’s CE Primary School, Blackburn.

We are a very happy school that is going from strength to strength.


Our motto is:Be the best you can be!


Mission Statement: At St Barnabas & St Paul’s Church of England Primary School, we want all of our children to be happy, healthy & safe. We value the positive contribution each child makes, which enables them to aim high, enjoy learning and succeed. Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. And love your neighbour as yourself”. In our school community, we aim to live by this, welcoming children and their families from all cultures and faiths. 


The quality of care, guidance and support our children receive, often on an individual basis, from teachers, teaching assistants and staff is outstanding and underpins the ethos of the school. (OFSTED September 2011). We truly care for each and every child at our school and want them to be happy and achieve their very best in all they do at school.

Our OFSTED inspection September 2011 judged us as a GOOD school with MANY OUTSTANDING features. We are all very proud of our school and our achievements so far. Our July 2015 SAT's results at the end of Key Stage 2 are some of the best in Blackburn with Darwen, with well over half our children attaining well above the national expectation. All the children in Year 6 achieved the national expectation which is a fabulous achievement. All our children live up to our school motto.


The Department for Education says this school has the best results of a school of this kind within a 75 mile radius - something we are very proud of. The school also received a national award that stated we had the best progress in the country being the 55th best school out of all the 25, 000 schools nationally.


We are very proud of our high standards and high expectations of ourselves and each other. We always aim high and encourage children to believe in themselves.


We are most proud of our wonderful children at St Barnabas and St Paul’s School. We feel we are blessed to teach such wonderful children. Our children are very friendly, welcoming, polite and their behaviour is impeccable – OFSTED said it was ‘OUTSTANDING BEHAVIOUR’. Our children are highly motivated and want to learn.

If you are considering sending your child to St Barnabas and St Paul’s School, I hope our website will help you with your decision. However, there can be no substitute for a personal visit and you are warmly invited to view the school and see us in action during the day. Please feel free to contact school directly with any queries you may have or to make an appointment.


I look forward to meeting you in the future.


Yours sincerely,
Carla Martini, Head Teacher.
