At Barclay Primary School we are ambitious about every child in our care and we recognise that it takes an entire community to educate a child – which is why we remain committed to working side-by-side with our parents.

Our vision for the school and those that is serves is simple:

'At Barclay Primary we want children to be happy and successful. We strive to develop confident young people who want to learn and achieve their best - but also to have an understanding of others and the world around them.'

Our values help us to achieve this vision:

ASPIRATION – aspiring to be the best that we can be.

KINDNESS – being kind to everybody – our peers, staff and the community.

RESPECT – we listen to one another, we take feedback and we improve.

HONESTY – we always tell the truth.

RESPONSIBILITY - we take responsibility for our actions.

Over the last six years Barclay has established itself as a very successful school, where children make rapid progress and attain high educational standards despite facing many challenging circumstances. In May 2016, the school was judged by Ofsted to be “OUTSTANDING”.

We aim to create a safe, welcoming and caring environment, where all are respectful and work together as a community, for the children their families and the staff. We teach all to value different communities and religions and to respect and understand people’s lifestyles and background.

We as a school aim to challenge all pupils academically, make them assessment proficient learners with a strong focus on targeted teaching for each pupil. Children develop academic and life skills and understand that learning does not stop at the school gate and is a lifelong process. 

I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Executive Head of School
