Thank you very much for taking an interest in Barton School, which is a Church of England Voluntary Aided School for girls and boys age 4+ to 11+. The information on our website explains our philosophy, aims and organisation, and Barton's strengths as a Church of England school.
We firmly believe that the recipe for success is a strong partnership between home and school. Together we share the responsibility for the all-round development of your child. Confidence in the school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We have lots of fun as well as striving hard to help our children get the most from their education.
Miss Carpenter has been with us as Headteacher for almost 12 years and is moving on at the end of August 2014, to pursue other opportunities in the educational field. Whilst we are sad to see her go, the vacancy offers an opportunity for headship in a caring school which has a desire to achieve the very best for each of our pupils. The school governors are now seeking to appoint a Headteacher with demonstrable leadership skills, an enthusiasm for teaching and learning and solid experience across the primary age range. Our Headteacher must be able to uphold and embed the Christian values which underpin school life and determine our church school distinctiveness.More information ...

Thursday March 6th is World Book Day 2014. All the children have already received a token for World Book Day to exchange for a £1 book or £1 off a book at participating book sellers.
The children in Class 1 are invited to celebrate World Book Day by bringing in their favourite book and a teddy, to which they can read the story.
