School profile

Barrow Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School

Barrow Primary is a rural first school currently full to capacity with 149 pupils aged 4-9 on roll. ASP data from 2018 shows that 90% of children are from a white British, Christian background. The percentage of children in receipt of the Pupil Premium funding is 13% with SEN children making up 6% of the school population. There are currently 4 EAL children.

The latest OFSTED inspection in October 2011 judged the school to be Outstanding overall, with gradings of 1 in every category. The current Headteacher, appointed permanently from January 2015, is very effectively supported by three senior leaders; two part-time Deputy Headteachers (teaching & learning) and an Assistant Head (pastoral). The highly skilled teaching staff work collaboratively with the SLT and experienced part-time teachers with specific expertise. Staff demonstrate a shared commitment to continuous improvement, which is evident in levels of planning, support and positive relationships.
