WELCOME from the


Welcome to Barkerend Primary Leadership Academy. The staff, governors and children are very proud of our school and we hope that this website will give you a flavour of our positive learning environment and ethos.

We work constantly to improve the educational experiences we provide for our pupils and have high expectations of everyone in school – an approach welcomed and supported by our parents. Language development is a key focus at Barkerend Primary Leadership Academy and we aim to develop children who are effective communicators, capable of building positive relationships and becoming successful lifelong learners and leaders.

In accordance with our mission to promote educational excellence, character development and service to communities, we ensure our pupils develop essential academic skills and prioritise the development of well-rounded individuals through participation in community, cultural and sporting activities. By providing outstanding pastoral support, we strive to nurture confident, healthy and well-balanced young people who are ambassadors for our STAR values of Service, Teamwork, Ambition and Respect. We want all of our pupils to make a positive contribution as considerate members of society.
