St Barnabas CEVC Primary School provides a welcoming, positive community in which the children learn respect for others, whilst being challenged to realise their full individual potential

Underpinning our vision statement are the following Aims:


  • The St Barnabas community of children, staff, governors and volunteers are a collaborative team where everyone is encouraged to excel within a positive, nurturing, framework.
  • Our Christian ethos and associated values of friendship, peace, trust, forgiveness, creativity and compassion underpin all that we do.
  • We are a small, warm and caring village school, where children and staff appreciate their wonderful  surroundings, where every adult knows every child, and where all the children  know and respect each other.


Further to the above the following key phrases and words came out from our consultation across governors, staff, parents and the wider community:

About our Staff:

Provide a supporting and nurturing environment for children to excel. Proactive in developing themselves as professionals (the latter also applies to governors). Model exceptional practice at all times. Nurture and celebrate talent. Provide pastoral care for whole family. Ultimately ensure that the children are ‘Secondary Ready’ as well as ready for the wider world.

About our Children:

Polite, friendly, well behaved, respect themselves and each other, know their boundaries, strive for their best academically, physically, and emotionally and are up for a challenge whilst also being flexible. Are quick to settle in and flourish when they start school and are confident in moving from Primary to Secondary education and on the wider agenda of being active citizens.
