Barrow Primary School

Barrow LogoBarrow CEVC Primary School is an Outstanding School located on Colethorpe Lane in Barrow, Suffolk, near Bury St Edmunds. A small primary school, it caters for children in Reception to Year 4.

At Barrow Primary School, every child’s educational and personal development is important to us. As we know from personal experience, all children are individuals. They grow both physically and emotionally at different rates. As a small village school, we are able to take an individual approach to child’s education.

It is in the primary school setting that everyone’s ‘formal’ educational journey really begins. So it is important to get this first step right. Here, we have experienced and dedicated staff who make learning fun, as well as teaching Literacy and Numeracy, very skillfully. We also pride ourselves on having a relaxed caring ‘family’ atmosphere in the school with the learners showing caring behaviour not only to their classmates but also to older and younger members of the school.

Going All-Through
This is a time of great change in education nationally. While other schools locally prepare to move to a two-tier system, our schools have already reorganised into the forward looking All-Through system. As a result, all the schools in our Trust are able to focus solely on our core mission of helping every pupil to reach his or her potential by providing a seamless education from 4-19.

Any child in Year 4 who is not already in our system can choose to move into the All-Through Trust. Indeed, parents with children of all ages are very welcome to attend one of our open events and/or to have an individual tour.
