Church of England Voluntary Controlled School


Our Christian values and our school motto ’let your light shine’ form the foundations upon which everything is built. The whole school ethos is firmly based upon Christian values which are robustly inclusive of our diverse community.

We foster a calm and purposeful atmosphere that is generated through distinct Christian values and the school’s strong vision. The caring Christian ethos at St Barnabas CEVC is central to our determination to provide the best education we can. We have very high aspirations for all of our learners.

As a Christian school, our inclusive Christian values permeate our curriculum and collective worship and parents and carers are asked to accept this when they send their children to St Barnabas. We rejoice that we live in a diverse and multi-cultural society and it is the aim of the school to teach children about other beliefs and traditions to enable them to be sensitive and tolerant towards those whose religion and culture is different from their own. We are an inclusive school and serve our community well.
