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.

Years 2,3 and 4 have been enjoying their taster sessions for tennis. We had our first Family Assembly with parents this week and Mrs Welch revealed who were this term’s Head Boy and Head Girl: Harry and Martha! Also, we found out who our new School Council representatives are: Tyler, Juliet, Jackson, Sophie, Ruby, Bobby, Frank, Erin, Naomi, Xander, Phoebe, Charlie, Katie and Jacob. Congratulations to those children! A few of the year 5s and 6s went to the CRGS opening evening and had a lot of fun! The receptions have been settling in nicely and are having an absolutely brilliant time!

Welcome back to a new school year! We hope you have enjoyed your first week at school. The new receptions are settling in well. This week has been action-packed with fun and enjoyable things such as: a crazy Mad Science assembly, street dance tasters and lots of hard work!  We also welcome Miss Moore that is working in class 4 and Miss Campbell. We have been informed by our brilliant new head teacher, Mrs Welch, that we are going to have a Head Girl and Head Boy of the term as well as the end of the year. We will find out who these are, as well as who the new school councillors are, during Family Assembly on Friday 14th Sept. Our new brilliant teacher Mrs Irshad (Miss Clews) was married in Kos in the six week holidays and Mrs Rosinski’s baby is a girl called Phoebe Rosinski.

This week has been loads of fun! On Tuesday and Wednesday, KS2 performed the end of year play- The Rocky Monster Show! Shortly after the play had finished on Wednesday, the prize giving and leavers presentation commenced. Well done to everyone who won an award, especially Thea and Oliver who are our new Head Girl and Head Boy! On Wednesday and Thursday the Year 6s ran around, having their T-Shirts signed. Also on Thursday, KS1 had a fab time in the sun having a yummy teddy bear’s picnic. Good luck to Mrs Farnsworth and all the Year 6s who are leaving and we all hope that everyone has a brilliant Summer!

These past two weeks there has been a lot of exiting activities. Most of year 6 and year 5 have had a spectacular time at Robin Wood. They enjoyed watching the teachers getting stuck in with all of the activities. Also, KS2 have been very excited about the summer production ‘The Rocky Monster Show’. We saw everyone’s costumes today; they looked great. As well, class 2 assembly was very interesting and the plants they have grown are fantastic! We have also had some visits from the new Receptions. We think that they have done really well settling in.

This week has been extremely hard-working with SATS. We have been working our very best. Everybody has come into school with a smile and have been looking forward to the upcoming fun events, including class 5’s and 4’s art, lots of sunny weather, a royal wedding lunch this Friday and the exciting ‘Your mile, Your way ‘ challenge. We are extremely excited and can’t wait for this activity to arrive. Also, key stage 2 are very excited to find out about the summer production.
