Barrowford St Thomas' C.E. Primary School

Thank you for visiting our newly upgraded website. We hope you find all the information you need about our lovely school, but if there is anything further you require, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. If you have general queries then Mrs Sherriffs, our school bursar, will do her best to answer them.

St Thomas' is a small voluntary aided school, 121 pupils divided into 4 classes which is in a relatively new building on the outskirts  of Barrowford.

Our school provides a caring, happy and friendly educational environment in which children are encouraged to reach their full potential in a nurturing Christian environment.  We aim for good manners, mutual respect and social awareness to go hand in hand with high standards of achievement in academic work. The most recent OFSTED inspection (February 2008) confirms our rigorous self -evaluation process and supports our judgements that our school is "outstanding" in many areas, although we are always striving to improve and do better! We aim to educate the whole child, so we promote sport, drama and music to support learning in Literacy, Maths, Science and the foundation subjects.

Being a small school means we know all of our children very well; their personalities, abilities and worries. We are able to quickly respond to changes in their needs and adapt the teaching and learning accordingly. Our children love to learn and this is evident to all who visit us here at St Thomas'.

We have a dedicated team of conscientious staff and Governors, hard working children and supportive parents, which produces a warm, flourishing family community of children and adults. Please enjoy looking through our website pages, and hopefully they will give you a flavour of our happy and thriving school.

Thank you.
