Welcome to Barkway First School
At Barkway school, we have high expectations for all our pupils and we aim to create a stimulating and vibrant learning environment, where all pupils achieve well and make good progress, academically, socially, morally, in the creative and performing arts and in sporting activities too. We have small classes and staff who know the children really well and best ways to help them learn and be happy.
If you are a prospective parent, or would simply like to know more about our school, please contact the school office for an informal chat or to arrange a visit. You will receive a warm welcome at the school!
The school underwent a successful OFSTED Inspection on 13th-14th March 2014, with the school graded as 'Good'. Key strengths identified were:
We were delighted with the outcomes of the inspection and would like to thank the children, staff, governors and parents for all their hard work to help us achieve this result. If you would like to read the report it can be easily accessed via the link on our Documents' page.
In September we were pleased to welcome the village pre-school who are now based within Barkway First School
Barkway Pre-school is a voluntary managed setting run by a committee of parents. We offer high quality care and education for children aged 2-4 years. We offer a safe and stimulating environment in a classroom setting within Barkway First School. We have our own enclosed outside play area offering free flow from classroom to garden play.
We are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (2012).
