This website is intended to help you know more about the life and work of Barton Primary School, which is a Community Primary Co-educational School for children from 3- 11 years in Newport on the Isle of Wight.
We aim to provide a stimulating, caring, safe environment for your child and a wide range of appropriate and exciting learning opportunities to help him/her enjoy their education, achieve success and grow into independent responsible people with a thirst for lifelong learning.
We believe we can only achieve the best for your child by close co-operation between home and school. There will be many opportunities for you to share in your child’s education and we are always available to talk to you about any aspect of your child’s development or any other issues that may arise that affects your child.
We look forward to sharing with you, this important stage of your child’s life.
