School Prospectus

A word from the Head...

The team at Barlow is incredible. The staff and governors are each committed to providing quality learning opportunities for the children, and deeply care about their well-being. I am amazed at the pace of learning within each classroom and the depth of understanding that every staff member has about every child in their care.

As members of the Barlow community, this won't be a surprise to you, and many parents have echoed similar sentiments to me each morning in the playground. I’d like to thank you for sharing your thoughts, and for making me feel so welcome as I join the school. Please do continue to talk to me, as I always appreciate hearing your thoughts and opinions – both good and not so good!

I’d like to finish by focusing on the most important members of the Barlow family – the children. They are delightful and a credit to the school. I've witnessed nothing but the highest standards of behaviour, outstanding manners and respect for each other and the adults in school. Whilst standing on the playground each morning I have seen children run and skip into school ready to begin their learning, with enthusiastic greetings being rapidly exchanged and sharing effortless smiles. Barlow is a happy school and it is fortunate to be based on a foundation that will support its future. I feel privileged to be a part of this, and I look forward to sharing our successes and improvements with you throughout this term.
