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 myself, or Kelly Brenkley, School Business Manager on 0191 5535968
