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 it was SATS and all of our class have been working really hard; because of this we all got sweets, lots of playing out in the sun and free time to relax. Mrs Halstead and Mrs Miller have been super encouraging and helpful whilst doing the tests. This week we have also been given our scripts for the end of summer production, we are extremely excited because we are doing Gel!

This week in class5 we have been doing our art. We have been trying to design our own landscapes by bringing in our own photographs of a variety of natural scenes. Next, we blended various colours to give us an idea of what colours we wanted in our final artwork. After this, we decided to practise painting a tree to see how our blended colours go together.

Special thanks to FOBS for year 6 leaver’s hoodies. We feel and look great wearing them.

Wc 20.3.17

This week, in music we have been learning the rock song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey. We will be performing this in our family assembly where we will be singing in groups. On Friday it has been really fun because it was Red Nose Day. In the morning we designed are our own red noses, using wire to make the noses pop out. In the afternoon we played games involving a ball. We had lots of fun this week and are looking forward to what we are doing next week!
