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.

We have had a great week here at Barrow. We performed our family assembly, the first one in this new year, and it was about the Little Yellow Chicken by Joe Cowley. It was a brilliant success! Also, we have been learning about the human body, finding out facts like how the full circulatory system of one human can orbit the Earth two and a half times! We hope next week will be just as good as this one.

This week in class 5 during RE we have made our very own information leaflets about Buddhism. We have also made mandalas which has eight spokes and each spoke has information about The Eight Fold Path. In literacy we have been studying poems especially DOLLOPS by Michael Rosen, which had different reasons to make it unusually funny for e.g. the horrible baby ate dollops as a food.
