Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and find out more about life at Barnes Junior School. We are incredibly proud of our achievements during the last academic year and we have high hopes of further success in 2017-18.

This year we are excited to be part of the Primary Writing Project, with a big emphasis on talk for writing and also being part of the Great North Maths Hub research team as we develop the Maths Mastery approach.

As a 3 form entry Junior school, we prepare our children for the next step towards secondary education, ensuring that we balance the rigours of basic skills with a creative approach to learning and lots of exciting learning opportunities.

We are a fully inclusive school and we aspire to ensure that all learner’s meet their potential regardless of their starting points.

Our website is updated regularly and chronicles the day to day Barnes experience. If you would like to find out more, we would be delighted to show you around.

Our acting SENDCO is Mrs R Whiteside (Miss Young is currently on maternity leave). If you require any information or assistance with regards to Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision at Barnes Junior School, please contact Mrs Whiteside via the school office. 

For any other information, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0191 5535968 


Simon Ward - Headteacher


As the weather conditions seem to show no sign of easing up or improving, and taking into account the circumstances faced by all of our staff, both close to the school and further away, we will be closed again tomorrow, Friday 2nd March. Thank you for your understanding and patience with these closures. I understand how difficult it is for working parents, but hope that the early decision helps you to an extent. 
Although we were supposed to be celebrating World Book Day on Friday, a day at home is a great excuse to be reading, and to submit an entry to our extreme reading competition- especially with the possibility of a snowy theme. Please send any photos to our facebook site or email to We will have our celebration day next Wednesday 9th March.
