Values and Ethos                 

We are a School in which every child understands his or her individual goals and feels encouraged and supported in reaching and exceeding them. We are a Church School and we all uphold Christian values. We always embrace kindness and good behaviour. We are a School in which we all feel safe and valued and are given the opportunity to express our emotions appropriatly.


Barkway V.A. Church of England First School is a Church school within the Diocese of St Albans. As a Church school, we have a Christian character and uphold Christian values. This gives our school a sense of community and leads to a nurturing and caring environment for our pupils. We have excellent links with St Mary Magdalene, Barkway and Rev. Ruth Pyke visits regularly to engage the children in collective worship.
