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’.

This week we have shared the story of 'Elmer.' The children have been very busy participating in different Elmer related activities. They have enjoyed making Elmer collages, colouring different elephant patterns and making elephant playdough!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our Macmillan coffee morning today either through your generous cake donations or through buying cakes. We were overwhelmed with the number of cakes and it was so lovely to welcome parents and grandparents back into school. It’s great to see that several parents have signed up to our Friends of St Barnabas PTFA too. Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Araujo can’t wait to start planning fun social events with our new volunteers.
This morning in Worship we listened to a rhyming Bible story about how God created our world and wants us to care for it. We then learnt all about recycling with Mrs Ham and her team of human recycling bins. We had to sort all of her rubbish into the different recycling bins. We reflected on the rubbish that we throw away and how we can care for our World by reducing, reusing and recycling. We finished by praying and singing 'This is God's world, let's try to make it a better place'.
