“St Bartholomew’s, known affectionately by many as St. Bart’s, is a thriving, inclusive Church of England primary school and nursery delivering high quality education and opportunities to the pupils in and around the semi-rural village of Areley Kings on the south bank of the River Severn, Stourport-on-Severn.  Whilst maintaining the highest expectations of our pupils, we work together to ensure all children are safe, happy and flourishing in their learning.  As a Church school we have a distinctive character where Christian values are promoted in all aspects of school life, underpinned by our chosen key values: Friendship, Respect, Compassion, Perseverance, Courage and Pride.

Our school’s distinctively Christian vision is theologically-rooted in the Parable of the Lost Sheep (Matthew 18:10-14 and Luke 15:1-7), where everyone is precious and every member of our school community will go to great lengths to ensure every child is loved and cared for as part of our school family; never giving up on individuals regardless of how they look or act, just as God has compassion for every person.  Our vision is at the forefront of all decision-making for every strategy, policy and rationale.

Welcome to our website where you can enjoy the fantastic things we do”

Our Shared Values

At St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School & Nursery we ensure all children are safe, happy and flourishing in their learning. Our shared values help us to achieve our vision and we actively promote the key values of  Friendship, Respect, Compassion, Perseverance, Courage and Pride. Our distinctive Christian ethos within our school and wider community is built on mutual respect and collective responsibility for each other. We believe everyone should feel known, valued and have someone to turn to when they need to, so they are supported and successful as individuals regardless of background. Learning is a continual process that is part of life and goes beyond the boundaries of the classroom; we all have the opportunity to achieve our personal best. Everyone has a voice that contributes to the democratic running of the school.

Our School Curriculum

At St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School & Nursery, we are proud to offer a broad and balanced curriculum that provides all pupils with a high-quality educational experience in all subject areas, providing a foundation for the next stage of their education and a successful future. Our exciting and innovative ‘Harmony’ curriculum promotes and develops a love of learning through carefully planned enquiries which connect all core and foundation subjects.  As we prepare our pupils for the rest of their lives, it is important that each child develops an understanding of how to learn and not just the retention of knowledge. Moreover, personal, social and emotional education and support plays an equally important role in equipping all pupils to be the best that they can be alongside spiritual, moral and cultural understanding development.
