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 most 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 click here to read our schools aims & values.

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

This week the netball team played on Monday and won 4-6 to St Michaels and St Johns. Well done to the team! Today it has been class 1 family assembly and it was all about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. All of the children spoke and sang really nicely! Also, today it was Sports Relief day and all of the classes are having so much fun playing sports in the hall, while raising lots of money at the same time.

This week we have had lots of fun with Creativity Week! The theme was “Artists”. Class 5 did their brilliant assembly on the American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. They showed their beautiful art work of flowers. Also on Thursday we had lots of fun in the snow.  So it was a very fun week, and each class has been very creative and made lots of fantastic artwork!

We are looking forward to Creativity Week in which we believe that we will be doing Art.
We enjoyed the snow and were cold this week, we had a lot of fun!
World Book Day was a blast and we all had a tremendous time! We were able to dress up in outrageous outfits that made us all laugh and we read to the KS1 children and vice-versa!

This week, class 4 and 5 have been doing D.T. and on Friday morning class 3 performed a fantastic family assembly on staying safe around electrical appliances. Class 5’s project in D.T has been about controlling vehicles - we have had lots of fun creating our cars and can’t wait to test them out! Class 4 are making packaging boxes, which are progressing extremely well and we are looking forward to seeing the finished products. All the children in our school are looking forward to half term, Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day. Happy Half Term EVERYBODY!

This week has been full of excitement starting with Barrow school netball team competing at Oak Hill College on Monday. They all played brilliantly and have another match coming up next Monday – well done to the team! On Friday, class 4’s assembly based on Henri Rousseau was spectacular. Everyone thought their artwork looked amazing! Class 5 are incredibly excited for D.T next week, because we are making controllable vehicles! There is also the F.O.B.S Movie Night to look forward to tonight. Don’t forget your tickets!

This week class 5 did a brilliant assembly about the Titanic and two year 6s read their fantastic recounts of what it would have been like to be a passenger on the ship. Also, class 4 have had an exciting week because they had to investigate who stole the laptop from the library. After looking at finger prints and other evidence, they discovered that the culprit was Mrs Walsh! Of course, this crime was only pretend, but class 4 certainly had a lot of fun and learned a lot!

We have settled back into the school routine now and everyone has been enjoying lots of fun lessons. Class 5 have been doing exciting experiments in science with complicated circuits and they are also planning to make their own electronic games! In class 4 the children have been organising a forensic science investigation! Everyone is looking forward to Family Assembly starting again next week. Make sure you are there to watch class 5’s assembly!
