Enabling Every Child To Reach Their Full Potential

About Us

Our school has a friendly, family atmosphere which supports all our children, enabling them to enjoy a good quality education which includes opportunities to be creative and inspired.

We place great importance on the development of strong social skills and personal relationships as well as promoting high standards in academic skills, sport, drama, music and art.

All our children in Key Stage 2 learn a musical instrument and there are opportunities to take part in musical events within and beyond the school.

We have a wide variety of computer equipment in the school with interactive whiteboards in every classroom and enough laptops and iPads to enable whole class teaching of computer skills.

Every child in the school is a member of a Buddy Group which contains children from each year group.  The groups have the opportunity to take part in activities together at play-times and at other times during the school year.

We welcome parents into our school as partners in their child’s learning. You can come and watch us work and help us with skills you have to offer. We also hold a number of open events which showcase what we have to offer to parents/carers.

We are able to offer on-site child-care every evening after school and we offer morning provision before school too.  Fun At Barford (FAB) has its own section on the website.

We are part of the Wymondham cluster of schools and most of our children go to Wymondham High School or Wymondham College when they leave us.

We are very proud of our children and our school and you are warmly invited to pay us a visit so you can check us out for yourself.
