Welcome to St Barnabas

St Barnabas Primary School is situated in North Common, Warmley, on the outskirts of Bristol. We currently have 215 pupils on roll organised into seven classes, in addition to this we also have our own Little Stars nursery class. We are lucky to have extensive grounds, which the school makes good use of. We are constantly seeking ways to develop our curriculum to include opportunities to learn outside and recognise that our pupils can thrive by learning in different environments.

School Closed

In line with the government’s response to Covid-19, our school is currently closed to all but essential key workers and specific year groups due to Coronavirus. If it is at all possible for your child to be at home, then they should be.

We cannot stress the importance of washing hands and social distancing enough! Please follow the government guidelines.
