The Learning Outside the Classroom Gold Award recognises the exemplary LOtC provision in our school and proves that we are leading the way to ensure that all pupils have access to frequent, continuous and progressive learning outside the classroom. Please see our LOtC Page for more information about this national award.
Welcome to Our Website!
Welcome to our web site. We hope you will find it useful and informative, both as an introduction to Dean Barwick School, and a continued resource.
At Dean Barwick School we value every individual equally, and are committed to providing the best education within a caring, family atmosphere. The school has close links with St Paul's Church next door, and is committed to working closely with the local community. We are proud of our reputation for working outside the classroom in the local and wider environment, and fully implement the creative curriculum, where all themes are seen as possible links to all subjects.
We are also proud of our small-school feel. The school is well equipped, with fantastic outdoor amenities including an outside classroom, playing field, adventure playground, pond and wildlife area. We also have a play area dedicated to the Early Years Foundation Stage which has a very large sand pit and tunnel /slide constructed area. The playground is used to provide constant outdoor provision in an environment where our children can learn and play safely. We also make regular use of the woods surrounding our school, and embrace Forest Schools Principles.
We have a number of children on roll who are home educated but spend some lesson time with us on a 'flexi-schooling' basis. This is wholeheartedly welcomed.
You are very welcome to visit us. We will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
Linda Graves, Head Teacher
