The Governing Body welcomes you to St Bartholomew’s Primary School; a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School for children aged from two years.We have a pre-school class for EYFS children called Barty Bears. We are a Primary School with children able to enter the middle school at either the end of Year 4 or Year 6. We were rated good at our last OFSTED inspection (2016). We are pleased to belong to the Leek Education Partnership which ensures continous education in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

St Bartholomew's is very much a family, part of a Christian, Caring Community linked with St Bartholomew's CE Church. We develop our children as independent learners and caring individuals, equipping them with academic and social skills based on their individual needs. ​Our  approach to learning, allows us to provide a broad and enriching curriculum in a caring environment. 

We are proud of our challenging, ​creative, values based curriculum which equips children for their future.

We have open sessions to enable new parents to view our school in action. Please contact the office (01298 83233) to visit. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
