Description of the school

Barnes Primary is larger than average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is slightly below the national average. About half of pupils are from White British backgrounds, and about a quarter each are from Europe and a wide range of other minority ethnic groups. An above average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language and small numbers of pupils join the school with little or no English. The proportion of pupils with learning, behavioural and communication difficulties is broadly average with some pupils facing severe difficulties. An above-average proportion of pupils have statements of special education need. The school has received several awards: the Artsmark Gold, Activemark Gold, Healthy Schools Award, Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark and the London Schools’ Environmental Award. It is a Designated Extended School. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate
