Pupils are confident and self-assured learners. They are proud of their achievements. They enjoy school and one said, ‘We absolutely love being here.’ (OFSTED March 2017). 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 March 2017judged us as an OUTSTANDING school. We are all very proud of our school and our achievements so far. Our July 2017 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 5th best school out of all the 25, 000 schools nationally for maths.
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.
Carla Martini, Head Teacher.
