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.



 WC 4.11.18
This week we have been selling poppies in the mornings with Lucy and Katie’s help. On Thursday class 5 went on a trip to Clitheroe castle to do some activities including: making a wreath, a poem and listening to a tommy. We also put our wreath in front of the war memorial and had a minute silence. 
We had a bake sale today to raise money for school equipment and will be having another one on Monday as there are still lots left! Thank you to everyone who donated cakes. 
It was class 3’s assembly today and they told us all about teeth and keeping ourselves healthy. Everyone really enjoyed it!
It is Remembrance weekend this weekend, with lots of events organised by “Whalley Remembers”. You can see some of Barrow pupil’s excellent WW1 themed work on the wall in Whalley library and some of our children are taking part in a lantern parade.

 W.C 29.10.18
This week has been amazing because lots of interesting things have happened such as: the N.S.P.C.C came in with their mascot Buddy the speech bubble to tell us how to keep safe online and speak out if we are unhappy and gave everyone an N.S.P.C.C sticker. Tonight the Halloween disco will be starting (4:30 – 6:30 for KS1 and 6:45 – 8:00 for KS2) and we hope everyone has a good time (we hope everyone wears a spooky costume!) Just a reminder that poppies, slap bands and bracelets will be sold on Monday to Friday next week.

WC 01.10.18
On Thursday the cross-country team competed and they did really well! On Friday the football team are representing the school by playing at St. Augustine’s high school. Lots of luck to the team!  It was class 5’s Family Assembly today, all about light and shadow, and Mrs Welch thought it was amazing! Next week is Themed Week and we are really looking forward to it! There will be lots of exciting activities going on in each class. On Friday afternoon parents are allowed to come in to look at everyone’s work. Thank you to everybody that has knitted or crocheted some poppies for Whalley Remembers, and just a reminder that there is still time to bring lots more in!
