We know that our local community will be incredibly grateful for how the Barnfield family has worked together.

Our children had a wonderful experience learning more about Judaism and the Jewish place of worship, as well as enjoying the opportunity to explore many Viking and Anglo Saxon artefacts at the museum. All of the children were exceptionally sensible and represented Barnfield perfectly!
A big “thank you” to all of the children and families who supported Barnfield School at the Burnt Oak Parade and Festival on Saturday 17th September. It was a fantastic success! A special thank you also to Miss Anders, Miss Coussins and Miss Halil for organising our dance group and choir, who performed brilliantly!
