Welcome to our school website.
At St Barnabas we strive to help every child to, ‘achieve great things’ and live ‘life in all its fullness’ by inspiring them with rich, fun experiences and equipping them with a love of learning. Our school has a strong Christian ethos built on our core Gospel values which the children chose themselves: Trust, Forgiveness,Friendship, Generosity, Respect, Service and Courage. St Barnabas was known in the Bible as an encourager so we try to follow his example and encourage others. With close links with our parish church, other schools in our multi-academy Trust and our dedicated team of staff, governors and parents, we take pride in, “Learning and growing together in a love-filled Christian family”.
We would welcome you to come along and visit our school as ‘Every day is an open day at St Barnabas’.

In our DT session we have finally moved onto the application of sewing skills. This week we added to the front of our stockings using over and running stitches. We used appliqué to add further embellishments and some children even managed to add bells and buttons.
In our history lesson this week we discussed why the Roman army was so successful. We looked at why they were so powerful and disciplined. We then looked at how they used manoeuvres and drills to create various formations so that they could protect themselves from every angle in battle. We finished with a real life drill to see if Mrs Gardner could get through the children’s wedge formation that they created with their own shields. Not one boulder (ping pong ball) got through so well done Year 4 - it was a huge success!
Reception have had a jam packed PE session today, they played games, had music on and everyone took part in each activity focusing on the fundamental skill of jumping. As a class their listening was superb throughout which meant we could play more games and have more fun! Well done Reception!
