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 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 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. My door is always open so please feel free to contact me about any of the detail on the site which I hope meets all of your needs.





Congratulations to all the pupils & staff who have worked so hard for Barrow Primary School to achieve the positon of the 6th highest attaining Primary School in England.

The result is based on the Year 6 SATS results.

This week in class 5 we have been making slippers. On Wednesday 17th, we are going to have a mouth-watering Christmas lunch! On Thursday 18th, KS1 will be having breakfast with Santa, after that he will be visiting all the KS2 classes to wish us all a happy Christmas. Towards the end of the week we will be enjoying a play, performed by professional actors and actresses, called the Christmas Story Box. Finally, we will be PARTYING ON!

Today we are watching the KS1 Nativity play. They have been practicing the play for over a month now and we are sure they will do great at the performances during Wednesday and Thursday. Also in Class 5 we are making slippers to accompany our DT topic! On Saturday we had our amazing Christmas fair thanks for your donations!

This week we have been planning a presentation all about aspects of South America. We will be presenting them in front of the class with a PowerPoint behind us. We have also been practising our Christmas carols for our up and coming family service; it’s going to be on Friday the 12th December. We are looking forward to singing for all our friends and families.
