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.

We’d like to say an awesome well done to all the year 6s for successfully completing SATs week. This week, we started the auditions for the play called the Dracula Rock Show. It is going to be hard work but loads of fun. We have also started our artwork and we are learning about Clarice Cliff. Most of her designs are art deco and contain geometrical shapes, which are also a bit bizarre - but creative. We are going to be designing and making our own pots using clay in the art deco style.

This week we have been focusing on last minute revision for our SATS, and are all prepared and ready… We will conquer, vanquish and overcome our SATS! Also we are enjoying our geography; we chose a country from the North American continent and are planning a travel brochure to persuade explorers to travel there.

On Monday, class 5 started their spring term swimming, it was great! Later that day, we were starting our revision for S.A.T.S week, so far we are doing exceedingly well. In geography, Class 5 are making their own holiday brochures for anywhere in North America such as: Mexico, Costa Rica, Alaska and Canada. We researched about hotels, animals, airports, exchange currencies, time zones, volcanoes and much more! At the end of the week, we had our class photos including the leavers’ photos. We all looked extremely excited!

This week class 5 has been inventing their own products and devising a sales pitch. They are really good and it has been fun. Year 6 have got their brand new leavers jumpers with all their names on the back – they are awesome! In Geography we have been learning about North America and creating travel broachers. Finally, in P.E. we have started doing cricket and it is great fun!!
