Key Information for Parents

To keep up to date it is vital that parents regularly read our weekly newsletter, which is emailed directly to you on a Friday.  This is packed with important information and key dates for your diary.

Reading at Home

Reading is very important and it opens up a world of learning to our children. At Barrow our

long term aim is for all children to develop a passion and love of reading, as well as becoming

confident readers across the curriculum. 

Every child at Barrow will be given a school banded reading book by their class teacher; this will either be on Bug Club or they may receive a physical book.  We ask that all children read to an adult THREE times per week and this should be signed and recorded in your child's reading diary.  This will be checked weekly by your child's class teacher.  In addition, all children will choose their own library book which they have the option of changing on a weekly basis in our School Library.

Bug Club 

All children have access to Bug Club.  Your child's class teacher will provide them with a Username, Password and School Code.  To access Bug Club you can click on the attached link

Seesaw Home Learning Platform 

Homework can be submitted to teacher on our home learning platform - Seesaw.  All children have their own unique home learning page.  Class teacher's will provide your child with their login details.

Timetable Rockstars

Children from Year 3 upwards will receive a username and passwords for Timetable Rockstars. This allows them to practise and prepare for the multiplication check at the end of Year 4.


A weekly spelling test is given to the children each Friday and tested on the following Friday. Please practise these words with your children and use the games on Spelling Bee to support their understanding. Your child's pass can be found in the front of their reading record.

After School Clubs 

Details of termly after school clubs will be displayed on the school's newsletter.  To book onto an after school club please contact the school office.
