Barton Junior School



Barton Junior School caters for up to 240 children aged 7 to 11. We inspire, challenge and motivate all children, every day, through our exciting creative curriculum. This provides many opportunities for children to achieve their goals, develop positive attitudes and feel safe and valued. 

The new school building opened in September 2019, creating an exciting new learning environment fit for the 21st Century. The newly landscaped grounds give greater scope for outside play and learning. A breakfast club is offered daily, as are after school sports activities and various opportunities to take part in additional music lessons.  

In December 2018 Ofsted recognised that: 

The school continues to provide a good standard of education and care for children and highlights many areas of strength across the school.’ It acknowledges that the school has a ‘strong vision for pupils to thrive’, and that pupils’ behaviour and achievement have strengthened further since our last inspection. The exciting curriculum that is instilled across the school by our dedicated team is acknowledged throughout the report, as well as the good relationships with you as parents and the wider community.
