Our school has a friendly, family atmosphere which supports all our children, enabling them to enjoy a good education which includes lots of music and drama.
We place great importance on the development of good 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 to enable whole class teaching of computer skills. All of our classes have fewer than 30 children, which allows greater attention to individual needs than in many, larger schools.
Every child in the school is a member of a Buddy Group which contains children from each class. The groups have the opportunity to take part in activities together at playtimes and at other times during the school year, such as sports day.
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 are able to offer on-site child-care every evening after school and we offer morning provision in response to the needs of our parents. 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.
