'Safe, happy and flourishing in their learning.'
St. Bartholomew's is a successful, happy school located in Areley Kings on the south bank of the River Severn, Stourport. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all our pupils and value the close, relaxed relationship the school has with its community.
As a Church of England school we have a distinctive Christian Character and we work to create an ethos where the Christian values of Friendship, Respect, Compassion, Perseverance, Trust and Forgiveness underpin all our work.
We are proud that OFSTED have recognised us as a GOOD school and we work hard to ensure we continue to improve. We believe in, and deliver, a creative curriculum which builds children's social and emotional resilience and draws upon the latest research in brain development.
We have invested in an innovative approach called THRIVE, which ensures that each and every one of 'our' children really do thrive. I hope this website give you an insight into our school and we welcome visits at any time
Susan Helps MSc. NPQH Head Teacher
We aim to provide a rich learning environment where children are given the very best opportunities.
We work to be inclusive ensuring all children feel safe, happy, able to learn, succeed and value others.
We work as a team with parents and other agencies to make a difference for all ‘our children’.
By following Christian values we nurture and care for 'our' children ensuring we listen to them, build their self esteem and teach them skills to prepare them for life.
Together we help them grow in the knowledge that God is love, help them reach their potential, fulfil their ambitions and broaden their horizons.
- Ensure that through the Christian values, chosen by children, parents, staff and governors, everyone tries to ‘live the values’ and shows compassion to those in need;
- Accept that social and emotional development underpins cognitive development and that the ability to show friendship and have friends is what helps ensure our children feel happy;
- Provide each child with a learning experience to enable them, through perseverance, to achieve their personal best;
- Inspire a love of learning that we all take on into our lives and equip our children with the skills and tools to become global citizens and to deal with change;
- Respect and celebrate individuality and diversity;
- Create a safe and trusting environment where children are encouraged to express opinions, be independent learners, take responsibility and improve by learning from their experiences;
- Create a sense of belonging where ‘our’ children can forgive and be shown forgiveness;
- We all play an important part in helping ‘our’ school to have a Distinctive Christian Character. This is done through our values and by supporting each child, whatever their starting point, to do their best to be the best.
