Headteacher Welcome from Mrs Mathews

Welcome to Downs Barn School's Website.  It is very new and we hope you will find it easy to find everything you need here.

As of September 2020, the world is a very different place because of the Coronavirus and the start of term will not be the same as any before.  However, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to help keep the children and staff at Downs Barn as safe as we can.  There is a dedicated page in the Parent and Carer Information section of the website about what we are doing at school, but please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions, or if you'd like to talk through your concerns.

Downs Barn is an Infant school, for children in Nursery (from 3years of age) to Year 2, placed in Downs Barn, which is very close to Campbell Park, as well as Milton Keynes Shopping Centre.  At Downs Barn, we pride ourselves on our nurturing environment and supporting all children's academic and emotional needs, throughout their time at Downs Barn .  Our four values of Respect, Responsibility, Reflection and Resilience underpin everything we do and help our children to grow into considerate children who try exceptionally hard in all they do.

We have a brilliant staff team who know our children extremely well and we all work closely across the school to ensure all children are kept safe, engaged well with their learning and given academic or emotional support when needed.  We usually welcome parents and carers into school regularly to see performances and their child's work and although this may be a little different this year, we will continue to share the learning and achievements of our pupils with you in creative ways!
