Information about this school
Barkway is a much smaller than average-sized first school. There are two classes. Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children are taught as one class, Years 2, 3 and 4 as another. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below the national average. The proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average. There are none in some year groups. Almost all of the pupils are White British and speak English as a first language. The number of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is well below average. There are none in some year groups. The pupil premium is additional government funding, in this school provided for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals.

The school works in collaboration with nearby Barley First School, and shares the same executive headteacher. The two schools have separate governing bodies which have agreed to work in partnership together.

Barkway Pre-school shares the school site. This provision was not inspected as part of this inspection.
