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.



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.

This week in class 5 there has been lots of fun activities going on around school. One of them was the year 6 ‘Bikeability’ course, where we learned all about road safety. The instructors were really impressed with all of the year 6 children! The year 5s have been doing creative artwork. 
In class 4, they have been making clay elephant models and decorating with sequins. They look beautiful – well done!
Class 2 also performed a brilliant assembly today about the seaside.
Good look to all pupils in Barrow primary school next week in your SATs especially the year 2s and year 6s.

This week we enjoyed watching Class 3’s assembly on programming. They sounded like they had learned a lot! We also enjoyed a wacky science investigation in Class 5 - analysing what causes mould to grow was both fun and interesting! Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, everyone!

This week at Barrow School we have had our class photos and had our first swimming lesson, which we really enjoyed. On Wednesday, four Y3s went to Ribblesdale tennis court and managed to get in the quarter finals! Well done to the team! This morning, Mrs Berryman came to her first family assembly. It was class 4’s assembly where they showed the video they had made of a play script. Everyone thought it was fantastic and really funny!

This week we have been working really hard and some classes have been doing some practice SATs. We are all looking forward to hearing how the class 5 and 4 footballers get on at Ribblesdale tonight, also we are excited for swimming lessons next week. This week we have had lovely weather which meant we could play out more and go on the field without wellies. Good look to the footballers!
