Welcome to our School
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school website.
Barby is a small, friendly, rural school with a welcoming ethos where children are at the heart of all that we do. Our unique, caring and family atmosphere is rooted in Christian Values and our professional relationships with each other, the children and our families. We recognise that education is a partnership between parents, children and school
We seek to provide a rounded education where all aspects of school are valued. We encourage children to take part in many activities; linked with the church, sports and music. We recognise the many achievements of our pupils through weekly celebration assemblies. We are committed to working with you to provide the very best care, nurture and learning experiences that can be given to enable your child to achieve their full potential whilst they are with us.
We are proud to be part of our local community and welcome people into our school to share worship, read in partnership and join us for events such as our summer fete. We embrace any opportunity to engage with our local community and the wider world.
We have a wonderful site that includes a natural spinney, a large outdoor classroom, a trim trail, house gardens, a games field and a playground. There are areas for quiet play and a contemplation garden is planned. Inside, the school is bright and welcoming with children’s work in evidence on the walls.
Our children are proud of their school and enjoy showing visitors around. They tell us that they enjoy coming to school, that adults listen to them and deal promptly with any problems.
Relationships are central to our school. The staff team is highly professional and motivated to ensure the very best for all our children. We value the positive relationships that we enjoy with parents here and believe that by working together, we can equip children with the skills and knowledge they need for a happy, fulfilled, successful future.
We believe that children should be happy at school, with opportunities to develop as individuals. Whilst it is important that children are able to read & write and possess confident mathematical skills, it is equally important for them to be able to manage their own learning, communicate effectively and make the right choices about their behaviour. Our aim is to ensure the children leave us ready to make a positive impact on the world!
Please enjoy learning more about our fantastic school and get in touch through the “Contact Us” page if you would like any further information.
We hope to see you soon.
