BARROWFORD ST THOMAS CE PRIMARY SCHOOL
A message from the staff of Barrowford St Thomas to all our children
A school where everyone grows in God's Love and achieves their full potential
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 Miss Eyre, our school Business Officer, will do her best to answer them.
St Thomas' is a small voluntary aided school, 122 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. 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.
Mrs J Duckworth
At Barrowford St Thomas our vision is that pupils will have a positive experience and understanding of Christianity, developing their own spirituality.
They will feel accepted, loved, valued, respected and secure.
Through a rich and creative curriculum, our pupils will flourish, deepening their knowledge and developing their skills and enthusiasm for life-long learning.
Psalm 92 vs 13-14
'They are like trees planted in the house of the Lord that flourish in the temple of our God, that still bear fruit in old age and are always green and strong.'
Our mission is to be a school where all can flourish and grow in God's love.
With God’s Love we Grow
The Rainbow Children
The history books will talk of now,
That time the world stood still.
When every family stayed at home,
Waved out from windowsills-
At those they loved but could not hold,
Because they loved them so.
Yet, whilst they did they noticed all the flowers start to grow.
The sun came out, they can recall,
And windows, rainbows filled.
They kicked a football in their yards,
Until the night drew in.
They walked each day but not too close,
That time the world stood still.
When people walked straight down the roads,
That once the cars did fill.
They saw that people became ill,
They knew the world was scared.
But whilst the world stood still they saw,
How much the whole world cared.
They clapped on Thursdays from their doors,
They cheered for the brave.
For people who would risk their lives,
So others could be saved.
The schools closed down, they missed their friends,
They missed their teachers so.
Their Mam’s and Dad’s helped with their work,
They helped their minds to grow.
The parents used to worry that,
As schools were put on hold,
Their children wouldn’t have the tools,
They’d need as they grew old.
But history books will talk of them,
Now adults, fully grown.
Those little boys and girls back then,
The ones who stayed at home.
They’ll tell you that they fixed this world,
Of all they would fulfil.
The RAINBOW children building dreams,
They’d dreamed whilst time stood still.
