Children love our school…
I like school because everyone knows you and you know everyone. The teachers are really nice and even if you have a particular friend, you can always get another one because everyone is so friendly.
Safia Year 5 pupil
I like reading books at school. We have lots of books at Barford.
RohanYear 2 pupil
I like playing with everyone and learning lots.
MarnieYear 2 pupil
I have been here for a while now and I like being in a small school because I know everyone. The surroundings are nice, it isn’t too crowded. My favourite thing is being able to learn new things, even if they are hard.
MollyYear 6 pupil
I’ve been here since Reception, in Year 2 I moved house, but I did not want to move schools because Barford is so homely, I have so many friends.
Emily Year 6 pupil
I really like this school because the classes are mixed, it means you get to work with a range of ages and all the teachers really know you.
Francesca Year 6 pupil
I like Maths because we work out problems together. I like seeing my friends too.
