Prospective NEW PARENTS for September 2021 Starters

Starting 'big school' is a huge milestone in every child's life and at Thomas Barnes we see it as a real privilege to start your precious little on their new and exciting learning journey. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions and the latest national lockdown, we will not be holding our customary open mornings just yet BUT we are delighted to be able to welcome you to your very own section of the website where you can find out more about our team, our approach to teaching and learning and how we make such happy memories of primary school life. We hope that you will consider applying for a place with us here.


We warmly welcome any questions via Mrs Jarman in the school office.


Telephone: 01827 213 840



With my warmest wishes,


Leanne Gaffiney

Acting Head Teacher

Who's Who?

Miss Green is our Early Year Foundation Stage teacher. She is a highly-skilled and experienced Early Years Lead who prides herself on providing the very best start to all of our Reception pupils.


Mrs Gaffiney is currently acting up from her classroom role as Head Teacher whilst our substantive Head Teacher, Mrs Tibbitts, is on maternity leave. She is due to return to us in December 2020 and I know will be very excited to meet you all.

Welcome from Mrs Gaffiney
