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.

During creativity week class 5 have been making foaming monsters and sweets, we also made little sweet boxes to carry them around; it was really fun. The excitement built up as Friday neared, it was red nose day! We hope we have raised a lot of money to help those in need.

This week we have been researching about famous people. We tried to write a persuasive piece of writing to convince that we should stay in the balloon. We chose our own famous person for our family assembly. Mrs Halstead chose four people to speak in our assembly. The people chosen were: Rosa Parks, Abraham Lincoln, Alexander the Great and Winston Churchill. In music we have been listening to “Don’t Stop Believin`” by Journey. We have also started our topic about Tudors- “Changing Powers. “

This week we have been planning and writing about the circulatory system – this topic was really interesting. Also, we have been using the class act filming equipment and performing our own version of the poem, My Dad, Your Dad. Next, we will be having fun editing and bringing our performances to presentation form. On Thursday, we had a valentines disco, it was really enjoyable and now we are all looking forward to our half term break.
