Headteacher’s Message – 21st December 2018


Dear Parents & Carers,

Firstly may I wish you all a wonderful Christmas. It has been an incredibly long and busy term. It is wonderful to be able to see all the festivities going on and see all of the performances and celebrations.

I want to thank all the staff and volunteers for their continued hard work and commitment to the school. The staff at Barton have been incredibly diligent and continuously try to provide the best for your children. It isn’t always easy, but we are immensely proud of our school and we strive to continue to improve the school, to be the fantastic school we know it is.

I would like to formally thank Mrs Meredith for the work she has done so far this year in looking after the school when I am not there. We are truly lucky to have her. I would also like to thank Mrs Townson for working with Year 3 over the last few weeks. We have a brilliant team at Barton and we are lucky to have them.

From January Colwell class, Year 3, will have Mrs Eagar and Mr Allen as their class teachers until Easter at which point Mrs Lucy Aram will become their permanent teacher. We were hoping she could start earlier, but unfortunately circumstances do not allow. The class will be in safe hands with Mrs Eagar and Mr Allen.

Can I also thank ‘the Friends of Barton’ for their sterling work in supporting the school and the money they raise to help buy loads of extra equipment and resources for the school. It is greatly appreciated and a vital part of the school.

Finally, the children at Barton have been a credit to you and continue to be a fantastic bunch. I wish everyone a restful Holiday and a Happy New Year

Mr Snow
