Pupils’ behaviour around school is exemplary.”

 “Pupils at St Barnabas live up to the school’s motto and ‘let their light shine.’ They are polite, respectful and happy.”

 “Children in the early years, including the two-year-old provision, thrive.”

 “Pupils are supported from an early age to aspire high. There is no ceiling put on their achievement.”

“Pupils take part in lessons enthusiastically. They enjoy learning and try their best.”

 “The school expects the best from its pupils and staff. Pupils live up to these high expectations.”

 “The school has designed an ambitious and broad curriculum. The essential knowledge that pupils should learn has been carefully chosen.”

 “Teachers use their strong subject knowledge to deliver the curriculum successfully. They expertly model the use of subject specific vocabulary.”

 “Staff act as positive role models for pupils. They teach pupils how to behave exceptionally well.”

 “Staff are adept at identifying any additional needs that pupils may have.”

 “The school’s programme for wider development is ambitious. In particular, the focus on careers and raising pupils’ aspirations for their future is remarkable.”

The school offers esteemed leadership roles for many pupils. Pupils relish the responsibility of being mini police or worship leaders.”

Pupils say the school is ‘a place for everyone.’ They celebrate their uniqueness and diversity. They are kind to one another.”
