Welcome to Barton Clough Primary School. I am very proud to be Headteacher at Barton Clough and look forward to welcoming you to our school at some point in the future. We work very closely with our families and work hard to ensure that our pupils achieve their very best whilst enjoying learning.
Barton Clough is a one form entry school in Stretford with currently just over 200 pupils on roll.
We became part of The Dunham Trust in March 2018 and work collaboratively with the other schools within the trust to ensure the child is at the centre of everything we do. The Trust is committed to:
- High quality academy improvement activity
- Cross-trust collaboration and opportunities
- Research and development
At Barton Clough we nurture positive relationships. It is at the heart of all we do. We are committed to teaching the skills and knowledge each child needs to flourish and succeed, with enthusiasm, energy and hope. We value children as individuals and encourage our pupils to have a go and try new things. We aim to build confidence in our pupils and develop a ‘can do’ attitude so that children learn from mistakes and aren’t afraid to get things wrong.
As a school, we value the support our local community brings and welcome parents and carers in to school on a regular basis. Having strong positive relationships with our parents is important to enable us to provide the very best for our pupils. We work closely with other outside agencies and welcome visitors in to school to develop learning opportunities and experiences.
Learning is fun at Barton Clough as we aim to teach the required skills of the national curriculum in an engaging and stimulating way. Children are encouraged to explore new ideas and work collaboratively with their peers.
At Barton Clough we house 2 specialist classes for pupils from across Trafford with Education and Health Care plans. These children learn in our ‘Small Classes’ called Acorn and Oak and are an integral part of our school. They work alongside all other pupils in school, building relationships and sharing learning experiences whilst accessing a personalised curriculum. All our pupils are treated as individuals and we pride ourselves on making everyone feel valued and cared for.
There are lots of reasons why Barton Clough is a fabulous school but our Wild Wood is one of the most exciting parts. We are very lucky that our school is surrounded by trees, flowers, plants and lots of different wildlife. We have wild rabbits and lots of different bird species all around us. We have recently bought 2 bird hides for our children to be able to spot different wild animals in a quiet spot. Learning outdoors is part of our curriculum and with our outdoor classroom in the middle of the Wild Wood, outdoor learning is fun!
