School Direct (Teacher Training)

Welcome to St Barnabas’ CE Primary School

We are a one form entry primary school in Westminster.

St Barnabas’ is a very successful and happy school where our children tell us they are happy, secure and enjoy learning. The school has been judged as outstanding by SIAMS and as good by Ofsted. We are made up of many different cultures and backgrounds and we all aspire to be the best we can be in every possible situation.

The staff and Governors value our Christian foundation and you will see this reflected in the high quality of care that we offer to all our children, the high expectations we have of their work and behaviour, and in the variety of opportunity we offer through our enriched curriculum. We are an inclusive school where all members of our school family are valued as individuals and for the contribution they make to our high academic standards and pastoral care. 

The most recent Ofsted inspection verified our good school status (July 2017), and our most recent S48 SIAMS inspection graded the school outstanding (June 2016).

Teacher Training

We work in conjunction with Teaching London: LDBS SCITT to recruit and train teachers on the School Direct programme leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
