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 keep safe, 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.

Please read the school's statement Promoting British Values, which reflects our continued commitment to keep children safe from radicalisation, extremism and online threats.

First of all we hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year, to you all. When we returned to school unfortunately we had no carpets in some of the classrooms, which was due to the flooding, but we carried on as normal and thankfully our new carpets have now been fitted.
In RE we have been learning about Islam, Rayhan and Abbas have provided us with first- hand information which has been very interesting, we have also done are own research and gone on to make our own power points which we are currently presenting to the class.

Due to the heavy rain at the weekend, we had a very bad start to the week: we were flooded! Mrs Miller worked very hard drying the school using a machine on Monday as the carpets were soaking wet. Class 4 and 5 were particularly affected and had to spend the day in the hall watching films. After a long day the carpets were finally dry and everything is now back to normal. Class 5 are carrying on with their nativity pop-up books and are now nearly finished. As it is getting closer to Christmas we are doing lots of Christmas activities including the school Christmas dinner. We have a surprise on Thursday as we have visitors and they are called Jolly Grimm Tales and will perform for the whole school.

This week we have been doing DT, PE and RE. In RE we have been learning about Christianity. We read the Bible and all about the events leading up to Jesus’ birth. We also watched the key stage 1 children perform their play -Wriggly Nativity. It was AMAZING! We also had games of Tag Rugby in PE; it was great fun but it was tiring. The best thing we did was DT. We started making moving toys. We used a mechanism called a cam.
It was very fun!!!
