School Vision 2016 – 2020

We will be an outstanding school where:

  • Pupils achieve the highest levels of attainment, making the highest levels of progress from their starting points towards national standards.
  • Pupils are happy and have the highest levels of well being – both physical, emotional and spiritual.
  • Pupils are well prepared for adult life and the next steps in their education.
  • There is a highly effective partnership between school, families, Church and the local community.

We will achieve this through:

  • Strong leadership at all levels which promotes high expectations and outcomes for all pupils.
  • Effective pastoral care and support for the development of healthy lifestyles and emotional well-being.
  • Being a values led school where our Christian Values are at the heart of all we do.
  • Promoting the key learning traits of Confidence, Collaboration, Curiosity, Communication, Creativity, Commitment and Craftsmanship (The 7Cs).
  • Promoting the development of key skills.
  • Highly effective collaboration with partner schools.
  • Promoting the partnership between school, parents and the community, focussed on achieving the very best for all our pupils.
  • Working with partner agencies to provide support to vulnerable families and children.
  • Highly effective transition arrangements that prepare pupils for joining St Barnabas or their new school.
  • Developing a learning community at local, national and international levels.
