Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to Barwick and Stoford Community Primary School. The school caters for children aged between 2 and 11 and serves the community of the villages of Barwick and Stoford, and beyond, starting at the age of 2 years old in our on-site Pre-school Jack’s

This school is a caring community school set in beautiful rural surroundings in the village of Barwick about two miles south of Yeovil.

Our aim is that all children can thrive in a caring, tolerant, understanding and inspirational environment. We put our pupils at the heart of everything we do.

We actively celebrate pupils’ achievements in all areas of our broad and balanced curriculum and enrichment offer. Our goal is to provide inspirational teaching and enjoyment of learning whilst upholding our RESPECT values.

Our motto is Respicio Consequi Inspirate meaning Respect Achieve Inspire

I commenced my headship at the school in September 2022 and feel extremely honoured to be leading a great school with amazing children, inspiring staff and supportive parents/community.

We are fully committed to ensuring that the school serves our local children and their families well, building on success with an unwavering focus on doing what is best for our children.

In the meantime, if you would like to know about our school, you are more than welcome to come and visit.

Mr James Rich
