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 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 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 in Class 5 we have been reading Oscar Wilde’s story The Selfish Giant, and have linked it to our drama. We have also been researching about Islamic art tiles and have now started to design and make our own. In science, we have been learning about light and are looking forward to carrying out investigations. Also, school council nominations have been put forward and the ballet will take place next week. The sun is out and the weather is fantastic; we all have been able to play on the field.

On Monday we had our last swimming lesson, it was fun week! Then we started to research about the Titanic and came to the conclusion on who caused the sinking ship. Also, on Wednesday we performed our school play – the Dracula Rock Show! It was a great success on both nights, then to follow the Thursday night production, we had our prize giving. At the end of the rewards, the year 6 finally watched the leaver’s video. We are now approaching our last couple of days. THANKYOU to all of the staff who have helped us through the years!

This week we have been busy practicing the play as its nearly here!  Also we have been trying to have our sports day, only the fun races, but it keeps raining. Key Stage 2 have been on their school trips, which everyone really enjoyed, class five went to Blackpool sea life centre which was great fun and very interesting .The end of the school year is almost here and the year 6s are very excited (and a little sad) to be leaving Barrow and moving to high school.

Wc 4.7.16

 This week Class 5 have been very busy because some of us have been on a taster day to various high schools such as Bowland, St Augustine’s, CRGS and Ribblesdale. We have also been practicing the summer production and it is starting to look really good. In amongst all of thi, we did some cross country running on Tuesday and we were exhausted after it. Today it was the last family assembly for the year 6 leavers and we all hope that we will like our new schools!
