About Us

We are a very happy small school in the rural community of Barton. Our school has five classes which are led by dedicated, enthusiastic, professional teachers and supported by talented teaching assistants.

Please enjoy navigating our comprehensive website where you will find lots of information about our school; the people who work in it; the successes of the children and the exciting curriculum we all contribute to.

Open days, evening events and seasonal celebrations are a feature of our school – please feel welcome to attend and support these children-led experiences so you can get a feel of our school family and environment.

Always, ‘we are guided by God to be the very best people we can be.’

What our families say about us.


We are blessed to be supported by an amazing community and are always grateful for feedback to help us continually reflect and improve aspects of school life. Here is a flavour of some of the emails we have been receiving since the Coronavirus Pandemic struck!

**** should settle in very quickly. He’s enjoyed working on Zoom and Teams and keeping up that connection and continuing to build good friendships with his classmates. He has been missing everyone and is excited to be coming back! Thank you for all the hard work you have all been doing. The standard of teaching, even under these circumstances, has been amazing! Thank you

Morning Mrs Feeney

I hope you’re keeping well?

Today is ***** first day on Zoom as he has been in school up until now.
I wanted to mention how impressed I have been at what you have organised for him and his class online. It’s fantastic that you are able to do this.
Personally I was so worried with the news about schools closing again….. You are doing a great job and I wanted to let you know.

***** is absolutely loving the zoom sessions, thank you! As soon as they’re over she says “can we call them back now?” She loves seeing everyone and having the chance to participate. 
Mrs Feeny- 
Thank you so much for your online lessons, ***** is really enjoying them. We’re really grateful that she has you teaching her, she said it’s much better than my attempt at homeschooling last year 😂
Mrs Roach-
We loved the assembly today, it was so lovely and heartwarming. You’re doing a brilliant job, you’re the most organised head teacher ever! ❤❤❤
Thank you all so much, you’re all doing a fantastic job and we’re so grateful. Stay safe.
