Welcome from the Headteacher

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I’d like to welcome you to Barrowcliff School.

You will not be surprised to hear (like all Headteachers) that I am very proud of our school where the welfare, wellbeing and achievement of our children are firmly embedded.

We are a team who believe in the value of every child and adult who comes into our school. We want all our school family to feel valued, happy and respected, and to recognise their role in continuing to make our school the best it can be. We aim to raise standards and ensure all pupils reach their full potential in every area of school life: academic, social, personal, physical and spiritual. We maintain this within an enjoyable and challenging learning environment that is rewarding for everyone. Through our teaching, we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices and take appropriate risks.

We work very hard to ensure we have a strong, dedicated and passionate team of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff that are all working towards our shared mission statement. We are proud of the positive comments we regularly receive from visitors about our staff and positive learning environment and hope that as you read through our school brochure, you gain a sense of this shared vision throughout our school family. Our school has benefited from considerable investment over the years – both in terms of the learning environments and the outside space – and we are very much community driven.

We look forward to receiving your application.

Mark Rogers,
