St. Barnabas Church of England Primary School
We are a small, friendly caring school and we take great pride in playing a central part in village life. We receive strong support from ‘Friends Of Barnetby School’ (FOBS) who work tirelessly to organise fundraising events for the school. We have close links with Saint Barnabas Church and hold regular school services in the church.
This is our promise to our whole school family, children and adults alike. Within a loving, Christian atmosphere we will offer each unique person continuing chances to take part in learning experiences, where they are enabled to explore the limits of their ability. Together we will ensure they have the opportunity to use their God-given talents to achieve their full potential.
Our school has achieved a range of awards for a variety of purposes. Currently we hold the Dyslexia Friendly Schools Award; our second Basic Skills Quality Mark, in recognition of the quality of our education and learning; the Sainsbury Sports Award Gold; and the Investors in People Gold Award for supporting all areas of the school community.
Although we are very proud of this national recognition we have not become complacent and are always working towards improvement. We cannot do this alone. We believe you, as parents and carers, have a very important role to play and we actively encourage close co-operation between home and school. We value and build on the experience and knowledge that children bring from home, and share with you the responsibility for ensuring that your child enjoys the very best primary education; an education that provides firm foundations on which to build success in the future.
By working together we can make sure this happens.
An important part of life at Saint Barnabas is teaching our Christian values of thankfulness, friendship, perseverance, hope, trust, peace, forgiveness and compassion. We raise money for many charities both in our local community and the wider community, as well as sponsoring six children at the Hope Community Village through the Hope India Organisation. Hope India Look after children who suffer from deprivation both on the city streets and in rural areas. They are contacted on a regular basis concerning the plight of children of all ages who have been abandoned, orphaned or who for a variety of reasons are suffering abuse or starvation.
