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.




Everyone will be happy to know that we all survived the Piranha pool at Robinwood!

For photos of the exciting adventures that are taking place at Robinwood please visit Class 5's web page



Live from Robinwood, today wood group have tackled the terrifying trapeze, shot our way through archery, had a really scrumptious tea of: pasta bolognese, jacket or tomato pasta. We had a successful journey and had a brilliant day overall. Forest group have also had a go at the trapeze and successfully jumped the furthest length. We have also completed the highest activity at Robinwood: the zip wire and took part in a painfully loud screaming contest and played a guessing game where you act out a film or television programme and the others have to guess it.
 From all the very happy Robinwooders

This week, in class 5, we have been creating the Y6 leavers video with Simon, which has been     brilliant fun! The video will be set to the One Direction track – History. The theme will be about our journey from reception to the end of Y6. The year 5’s have helped Simon with the filming and editing of the video. The reveal of the video will be on prize giving night (21st of July). It is going to be AMAZING!

This week we have been rehearsing for the school play, which is the Dracula Rock Show - we are all happy with our parts and know we’ll do a fabulous job. In addition to this, we started our art topic. We have been creating our clay containers; they are all amazing so far and we can’t wait to paint them. Class 5 are practising for this week’s assembly, which will take place on Friday. It is about the techniques advertisers use to persuasion us to buy their products. It is class 5s last family assembly and we want to make sure it is GREAT!

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.

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!
