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 team included three NQTs at the start of their teaching careers, endorsing our commitment to developing our own talent.

club The Y5 girls who run the music club for Reception created an end to term grotto for the children today. It was beyond cute! They dressed up as Santa, Mrs Claus, an elf and an elf in training. They had written cards for all the children and given them a little present too. It was all their own planning and preparation. I have attached a few photos. It melts the heart!

We are all looking forward to taking the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupil to the pantomime tomorrow. Just a reminder that chef will be providing hot dogs (and vegetarian hot dogs) for school dinner when the children return from the pantomime so there is no need to send your child with a packed lunch. It should be a wonderful occasion.
