Welcome to Barrow Primary School!

As head teacher here at Barrow Primary School I would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who accesses this school website. You may be doing this to learn a little more about the school, the staff or the curriculum. You may wish to check term dates, latest newsletters or weekly spelling lists. You may wish to have a look at our latest prospectus or the most recent Ofsted report. All of this information and so much more, including pictures  of recent events involving our pupils both in and out of school, can be located on this newly updated website which we hope you will enjoy navigating.

We are proud of the school’s many achievements, which have been the result of hard work by a very professional team of staff, and an equally determined and enthusiastic group of children.

In our most recent Ofsted inspection (May 2013), we were again rated as an outstanding school. We are delighted with our continued outstanding status but we are always looking for ways to make this school even better, whether it is from the curriculum or pastoral perspective or even the actual design of the building and school grounds themselves.

Working with parents is an essential prerequisite to helping us achieve this ambition as we believe that good strong partnerships, coupled with quality teaching and learning and high expectations at all times, will undoubtedly help pupils keep safe, realise their full potentials, lead to higher levels of attainment, promote good citizenship and prepare pupils well for their secondary education. This website hopefully reflects that philosophy and commitment. Please click here to read our schools aims & values.

Please read the school's statement Promoting British Values, which reflects our continued commitment to keep children safe from radicalisation, extremism and online threats.

This week was Anti-Bullying Week and we discussed how everybody is equal and unique and had a great time wearing odd socks, looking at mirrors in boxes in assembly with Mrs Mabbott (showing us something special – us!) and so much more! Friday was Children in Need and we thought about how some children are not as fortunate as us. We dressed in spots and took part in fun activities. Class 5 designed and made our own Pudsey-themed clothing! We also sent off our shoe box gifts to children in other countries. Thank you to all the children and parents who have helped make super outfits and donated money.

This week we have been learning about Remembrance Day and also selling poppies in all the classes. We led an assembly to remind people why we wear poppies – to remember those who have died in battle. We also had a minute’s silence in school today, to think about the soldiers and the sacrifices they made for us all.
As well as doing a Remembrance presentation it was also class 5’s assembly, which was about our D.T. We have all made fantastic moving toys with a cam mechanism.
The reception class have been learning how to ride a bike with instructors from Bikeability. They all had fun learning how to be safe on their bikes and improved their skills a lot!

This week there has been a hockey tournament and we did very well: winning one, losing two and a draw. We were very proud when we heard how well we did. There have also been remembrance poppies going around school and children have made lots of kind donations towards this cause – to remember the people who died in war. In class 5 we have been having a great week doing D.T. We have created our own moving toys!

This week we have been doing hockey in P.E and Miss Holden has chosen a team to represent our school. Also the football team played at ST Augustine’s - they lost two, won one and drew one. They tried their best and we are very proud of them! This morning we watched the amazing performance of class 1’s first ever assembly and they sang a song about counting forward and backwards from ten. It was a spectacular performance from the receptions seeing as it’s their first ever assembly and we are looking forward to their next one!

Harvest Festival – Food Bank Visit 18th Ocober 2017
Today Thea and Roman (year 6 school council representatives) went to the food bank at Clitheroe Trinity Church. There were lots of generous donations to take and they were very pleased receive it all. We firstly went into where they store all their food and we were amazed with how efficient they were. They said that they would never give anyone out of date food because it would not be fair. All the food had labels to show when they went out of date. They even had pet food, blankets, washing up liquid and toiletries. They also had an unusuals box which had food and drinks that weren’t usually brought into the food bank. We would like to thank the staff for being so polite and making us feel so welcome and a big thank you to parents and pupils for contributing so generously. Thank you to Mrs Mabbott and Mrs Farnsworth for escorting us there and back.

This week at Barrow school we have all been working extremely hard - especially in maths. Mrs Mabbott visited each class with Mrs Cox to see how amazing we are at maths. On Wednesday we had a governor and a school advisor who also visited each class, they were really impressed with the standard of work throughout school. On Friday class 2 presented an amazing assembly all about France – we really liked their song about the French flag! Mrs Mabbott gave every class a Head Teacher Award for working so hard in maths and for super behaviour!
