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.

This week has been extremely fun, as always. Although we had a quiet 2 minutes (for Remembrance Day), we have had many a great lesson, including our geography topic about South America. We are making a presentation on a PowerPoint, all about 2 or 3 subjects like The Amazon and Angel Falls.

This week we have been creating tapestries from the play Romeo and Juliet. We have been using a variety of threads, wool and materials to sew on to our tapestries. On Thursday we are having a Halloween disco and after the half term we will be joined by a new member of our class called Lily. We have had a great week and can’t wait to come back after the half term.

This week we have had trials for the under 11’s cross country. The top six boys and girls went through. On Thursday, the top twelve went to compete with other schools. We had some great outcomes. Altogether the boys were ranked second! This week we have started are art topic, talking textiles. We have started to make tapestries of a scene from Romeo and Juliet by sawing with different materials. Also, we have made Christmas designs for the fobs to turn into real polished Christmas cards! This week has been GRRRRRREAT!!!
