INSPIRE learners, CREATE  opportunities and  DISCOVER the world  TOGETHER.

Barrow CEVC Primary School

I have come that they may have life and have it to the full – John 10:10 

With high expectations and Christian values at the heart of our ethos, we INSPIRE and value individual, independent learning so that everyone in school is able to be the best that they can be. This idea of thriving comes directly from John 10:10, where Jesus promises that living in community with God and one another brings abundant life to all. Placing children at the centre of everything we do, we CREATE a strong, life-long learning community of staff and children in our warm and welcoming rural environment. A rich, vibrant curriculum ensures that children DISCOVER and develop skills and understanding across a stimulating range of subjects. Time is also given to developing spirituality and character, with a focus on Christian values in the classroom and Collective Worship, which are outworked with the local church and in the community. Our inclusive school community celebrates diversity and works TOGETHER with families and the wider community to prepare our children to be positive and active members of society, bringing that ‘full life’ with them into their future contexts.

INSPIRE  In our vibrant learning environment, our dedicated, motivated and nurturing staff INSPIRE the children to become life-long learners and confident, happy individuals.

CREATE   We CREATE opportunities and experiences within our safe environment for children to develop their awareness, skills and talents thereby enabling them to discover their unique place in the world.

DISCOVER  Through a broad and balanced curriculum, we encourage the children to DISCOVER ​and develop their strengths and knowledge, to challenge themselves and achieve their full potential.

TOGETHER  Learning, playing and growing TOGETHER, we ensure that the children develop friendships, compassion and understand the importance of respect, tolerance and good behaviour in the school, home and wider community.

Swimming Pool

Working together with Elite Swimming Academy, the school was able to secure the future of our swimming pool with a major refurbishment in 2015. The treasured swimming pool, funded and built by the Barrow village community over 50 years ago now, is now used by both ESA and the school with a much expanded capacity to deliver weekly programs of high-quality swimming lessons.
