Welcome to Bar Hill Community Primary School. Bar Hill is a school which truly values children as individuals. We have high expectations for all children in our care. We aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for all children and we are committed to providing the best education for them.
In July 2010 we had a subject inspection on ‘economic well-being’ and were awarded an outstanding grade. During our recent full Ofsted inspection (September 2013) a team of three inspectors described our school as having good overall effectiveness with outstanding leadership and management.
‘Standards are well above average in reading, writing and mathematics at both Key Stages 1 and 2. Consistently good teaching means that children achieve well whatever their starting points’. This was confirmed by our ranking at the top of the league table of 200 Cambridgeshire schools in 2012. ‘The school also makes an outstanding contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’.
We are proud that ‘almost all teaching is good and some is outstanding’ as our current team includes three NQTs at the start of their teaching careers, endorsing our commitment to developing our own talent.
At our school children come first and we try to ensure that they will make a positive contribution in the life of our local and global community in Cambridge for having made the most of progress and for having the highest results. We are all very proud of our achievements. However, what is most important to us and as a school is that we are driven by our school values of love, honesty, kindness, respect and equality which underpin all that we do and we try to ensure that they will make a contribution to the life of our local community.
If you are considering sending your child to our school please make an appointment to visit us. The choice of school for your child is probably one of the most important decisions as a parent that you have to make. Your child’s primary school years are a life changing experience and it is crucial that they are happy and enriching and enable every child to work towards achieving their potential. We look forward to working with you in partnership for your child.
