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 in our R.E. topic we have been learning about Hinduism. We have talked about significant milestones and have used one of William Shakespeare’s speeches – the seven ages of man to bring to life a journey from birth to death. On Friday, because we have worked so hard, we are going to have a party and fun day. We are prepared and ready and raring to do our SATS; get it out of the way so that we can concentrate on our end of year production. Good luck to everybody during test week.

This week in class 5 we have been making headgear. We used balloons and paper mache to construct the base of our headgear. We chose themes to base our hats on using different cultures and countries. On Friday we’re having an Easter egg hunt for all the classes. This is the last week of school until the holidays, everybody is very excited!

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.
