At the start of the afternoon of 17th SEPTEMBER 2020, I was contacted by a parent of a child in Skylarks (3) to inform me that their child has tested positive for Covid-19. The child was not in school on this day. The parents of all the other students in the child’s class (Skylarks class), have been contacted and all children and staff in this class have been sent home this afternoon and told to self-isolate for 14 days. The rooms where the class have been taught are to be deep cleaned immediately. No other student bubbles in any other year group have been affected.

Welcome toBarden Primary SchoolCaring Sharing and Learning Together


Hello, and welcome to the website for Barden Primary School,

My name is Mrs Holgate and I am the Headteacher at Barden Primary School. I would very much like to welcome you and your child to the thriving school community of Barden. Barden is a happy, caring school where hard work and good behaviour are expected and achieved. We encourage children to develop their talents and seek excellence in all that they do. We expect our children and adults to support one another and to celebrate each other’s achievements.

We offer a safe, caring environment and provide a wealth of learning opportunities that ensure that each child develops socially, academically and emotionally. We hope that our new website provides you with an overview of the special nature of our school community and the wonderful work which goes on here. We are so proud of our school and strongly believe that in our children we inspire a lifelong love for learning.

I look forward to seeing you soon. Kind regards,

Mrs Holgate  (headteacher)
