Barrowford St Thomas C.E. Primary School

Our vision is to be a school where all can flourish and grow in God's love.

  1. HOME

Welcome

Welcome to Barrowford St Thomas, a cherished member of the Church of England family within the Diocese of Blackburn. As a beacon of faith, learning, and community, the school is committed to providing a transformative and holistic educational experience.

Being a part of the Church school family at Barrowford St Thomas means joining a community that cherishes each individual as a unique creation, fostering a sense of belonging rooted in Christian principles. Our school proudly embraces the rich heritage and traditions of the Church of England, creating an inclusive and nurturing environment where students, staff, and families thrive together.

We would like to thank you for visiting our 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 Rides, our School Business Officer or Mrs Chapman our School Admin Officer, 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. We were delighted to be judged OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in September 2023. Please read our report.

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. 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.

Mrs J Duckworth
