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, we performed the play Dream on,  It was a huge success and we hope it was enjoyed by everyone. Following the play two pupils from each class were presented with an effort and an achievement award. Then it was time for the year 6 children to be presented with a photograph, leavers book and memory stick, we all felt a little sad but excited too
Afterwards we watched the year six’s leaver’s video, which was brilliant; hopefully it will be posted on the school website soon. At the moment we are working on our art project – making shelters.

We also have school trips to look forward to, which is exciting, class 5 are going to Houghton Tower. Some year 6 children went to Bowland High school for 2 full school days, we’re sure they had a great time!

We have practised our colour mixing and painting techniques in preparation for our own pieces of art. Also, we have been practising for the play- its going to be amazing.
