Barrow Primary School
Barrow 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.
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.

These will continue this term with an opportunity for developing artistic skills. Through observational drawing skills of looking closely, noticing details and making improvements will be developed. These skills are also important for other areas of the curriculum. Most children and adults do not know how drawing is learned, it is not just a talent that is inherited, drawing skill emerges with practice. Observational drawing forms only one aspect of developing artistic skills, imaginative art will be a feature in other lessons. Realising that improvement comes with practice, being comfortable with mistakes and becoming confident in attempting something new are essential aspects of learning for life. If you or a family member would like to spend some time in school learning alongside the children we would love to see you.
