From the Acting Headteacher
Mission statement: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. And love your neighbour as yourself’ - Matthew 22:37
I am pleased to welcome you to St. Barnabas and St. Paul’s Church of England Primary School. We are extremely proud of everything that we do at school to give your child the best possible education. As a church school, our Christian faith is central to the moral development, mutual respect and the appreciation of our diverse multi-cultural community. As such our children are confident and self-assured learners. 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. All our pupils live up to our motto: ‘Be the best for God you can be.’
'Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people’ - Colossians 3:23
Our OFSTED inspection, March 2017, judged us as an ‘outstanding’ school. We are all very proud of our school and all our achievements.
We are very proud of our high standards and the high expectations we have for ourselves and each other. We always aim high and encourage children to believe in themselves. We place great emphasis upon the well-being and personal development of every child. As a school, we work hard to create a lively, engaging and purposeful learning environment. Our school strives to improve in everything we do and the children and staff relish this challenge. This is underpinned by our values which have been developed by the staff, governors and children. These are: Hope, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Trust, Compassion and Thankfulness.
If you are considering sending your child to St Barnabas and St Paul’s Church of England Primary 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.
