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.

Felt Making in Year 1Felt Making in Year 1

The Year 1 children thoroughly enjoyed the morning they spent making felt visiting teacher Victoria Bush. 

Mrs Bush helped us to make individual felt crosses, which she then joined together to form our wonderful large felt
cross which is on display in the entrance to our school.

The children chose which colours they wished to include in their cross design and were then shown how to pull the wool into strands to begin the first process of felt making. We then learnt how to wet the wool and rub it to form the felt. Mrs Bush also told us the story of how felt was believed to have first been made. It was a very creative, exciting and inspiring activity for all the children and the adults involved, even though we all ended up smelling a bit like sheep!

Children perform at Theatre Royal in BuryChildren perform at Theatre Royal in Bury

Children from Barrow Primary School, near Bury St Edmunds, have taken part in the Shakespeare Schools Festival (SSF) at the Theatre Royal in Bury on Monday.

The 30-minute production of Romeo and Juliet was staged with Year 3 children.

Speaking ahead of the show, teacher David Barrett said: “There are lots of interesting aspects to our production. We have really tried hard to incorporate all of the techniques the facilitators introduced at the workshops and so we are using some interesting ways of telling our story.”

SSF offers students from all backgrounds the opportunity to perform Shakespeare on their local professional stage. It also gives teaching staff the confidence and skills to take on the challenge of directing a Shakespeare play with even very young children.

Other schools in the Bury St Edmunds All-Through Trust also performed different plays on the same night.
