I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Barlaston First School. This is a wonderful school and I am extremely proud to be part of the school’s governing body.

Barlaston FS is a close knit school with a distinctive Christian character and this is echoed in our school ethos of “Let your light shine” and this ethos is a key theme of our weekly morning worship sessions that we encourage and welcome our parents to attend. We maintain strong links with our local church at St Johns and we are blessed with a very passionate PTA group who organise regular events for parents and the local community alike to take part in.

Our Staff are fully committed to providing the best possible levels of support, nurture and guidance for all our children to help ensure they achieve their full potential. Progress against the curriculum is monitored very closely at all stages of the child’s development and where required we will tailor individual support for children that need it. We also reward examples of good behaviour, kindness and teamwork in order to focus on the whole child’s development alongside their curriculum achievement.

In addition our Head teacher operates an open door policy and parents are welcome to come in and discuss any concerns no matter how small or trivial they may appear. Our school has worked hard over the past few years to improve standards and this has been reflected and rewarded in our current school pupil numbers that have risen from 64 in 2010 to 134 this academic year.

This is a fantastic school with a great ethos and hardworking staff, providing a safe and exciting environment for our children to develop and grow, ready to confidently take their next steps at middle school and beyond.
