Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our school website. I am very excited about the new school year and  looking forward to welcoming our new Y3 pupils in September. 

I want children who come to Barnes to learn in a creative way, exploring the world around them, enriched by wonderful texts and the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom. We also believe that children should have a say in shaping their curriculum and making the experiences relevant and interesting for them.

We  want Parents/Carers to be a massive part of their child’s education, and want to ensure that communication is effective and that you get opportunity to share the learning that goes on.

Our website is in the process of being updated so please check back for regular updates. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself, or Kelly Brenkley, School Business Manager on 0191 5535968.
