Barton Park School is a new primary school, including a nursery, on the Barton Park Housing Development situated on the outskirts of the City of Oxford. Our school opened in September 2020 to children in reception and a mixed years 1 & 2 class. The school will grow over the coming years with a final capacity of 315, with a potential to expand further to 420, subject to community demand.
Our place within the heart of a new and developing community, with easy walking, cycle and bus routes, is a perfect location for families and staff alike. Our lovely new building and the fantastic facilities available on site, along with our neighbouring sports pavilion, make for a very special place for children to learn and flourish - and for teaching staff to teach.
We have high aspirations for all our children. Our curriculum is designed to provide children with high quality, rigorous and engaging learning opportunities. Enquiry and creativity are central to our learning, and these principles are underpinned by a solid foundation in the key skills. We aim to build on each child’s natural curiosity and help them become enquiring, resilient and confident learners, able to communicate their ideas to both peers and adults. Quality teaching, targeted support and enriching, open-ended learning opportunities - alongside well planned indoor and outdoor environments - allow all children to develop their thinking skills, independence and individual talents.
Our six school values were chosen in collaboration with the school community: respect, kindness, equality, independence, perseverance, curiosity. It is important to us that these values reflect both emotional and intellectual growth and that they can be embraced by everyone within our diverse community.
Barton Park is committed to offering a variety of extra-curricular activities after school and developing these opportunities as we grow. Our children already enjoy access to dance, sports, art and music clubs, led by experts and have had the chance to perform on the stage at Pegasus Theatre and The Town Hall. Such experiences are key to fostering confidence and self-belief, as well as extending horizons and understanding of others.
