At St Barnabas we endeavour to create a caring place, where every child is valued and learns to value and respect themselves and those around them. An exciting place, where children are motivated to learn and have the confidence and determination to succeed. A supportive place, where children derive inspiration, strength, guidance and growth from Worship. A place where our Christian ethos enables the children to strive to achieve in all that they do. A team built of children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community, where we all work together to live by our Christian values.

Our School Motto, ‘Dream, Believe, Succeed’ shows our belief that nothing should stand in the way of all children reaching their potential. Through our curriculum we aim to develop self belief and a ‘can do’ attitude in all pupils.

Our badge represents the ship of St Barnabas. It’s been said that a ship isn’t built for the harbour but for the sea. We encourage a growth mindset in children and together with the 7Cs – confidence, curiosity, collaboration, communication, creativity, commitment and craftsmanship – to prepare them for their next steps in life and education.
