Shine at St Barnabas – Parent Partnership

Here at St Barnabas, we are fully aware that children learn and develop from birth to 5 years more than at any other time in their life. Therefore, we are invested in providing the best possible start for our littlest children, to support them in their education and success in the future.

We know that Early Years is a journey and recognise the important role that parents and carers play in helping our children thrive and the significant impact that they can have on their learning.

At St Barnabas, we aim to encourage all of our parents to talk, play and read with their children. We are so grateful for the Shine Trust in supporting us to  provide meaningful opportunities for our Early Years staff to share the EYFS framework with families and provide ideas and resources to support and continue their learning journey at home.

We understand that parents can face barriers, such as time and understanding what more they can do to help their child. Therefore, our parent hub sessions are going to be a fantastic opportunity where we can all learn together, and build strong connections with our families.’

Ways you can support your child at home

It is important to ensure pupils’ education is minimally impacted by any absence from school. Therefore we have invested in a number of online learning platforms across the curriculum to help keep our pupils engaged in learning. All pupils have been given their log in details for sites which require them. Should you have any difficulties, please either speak to the class teacher, the school office on 0161 223 3593 or the school office on
