Barby is a small, friendly, rural school with a welcoming ethos where children are at the heart of all that we do.

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 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.

    PTA Christmas flyer

    As stated in the PTA newsletter we are unable to hold our usual school Christmas fayre and so have had to be a little inventive of what we do this year.

    1. We are holding our first virtual Facebook fayre this Saturday but don’t worry if you cannot make it you can still view and order after the fayre with the sellers. The raffle will also be drawn on Saturday so head over to the page to be in with a chance to win and see the great prizes on offer.
    2. We are selling various Christmas products and baked goods that would usually be at the fayre (order form attached) with collection being on the last week of term.

    All money raised goes back into the school to enhance the learning and school experience for the children at Barby Primary School.
