Barton Clough became a sponsor led academy and a member of The Dunham Trust in March 2018.
At Barton Clough positive relationships are nurtured, it is at the heart of all the school does. The school is committed to teaching the skills and knowledge each child needs to flourish and succeed, with enthusiasm, energy and hope. Barton Clough values children as individuals and encourages pupils to have a go and try new things. The school aims to build confidence in pupils and develop a ‘can do’ attitude so that children learn from mistakes and aren’t afraid to get things wrong.
As a school, Barton Clough values the support our local community brings and welcomes parents and carers in to school on a regular basis. Having strong positive relationships with parents is important to enable the school to provide the very best for its pupils. The school works closely with other outside agencies and welcome visitors in to school to develop learning opportunities and experiences.
Learning is fun at Barton Clough as the school aims 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.
