Welcome to Bar Hill Community Primary School, 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 and we are committed to providing the best education for them all.
At Bar Hill School we are determined to create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will be challenged in their thinking, to achieve to the best of their abilities and strive to become lifelong learners.
We believe our aims provide the basis for the delivery of a dynamic curriculum, the provision of a stimulating and creative learning environment and a foundation which will prepare every child for the changing nature of society.
'Being a teacher is a huge privilege – one that I take very seriously. Teaching and education are as much what I am as what I do, and I aim to share my passion for learning with every member of our community, adult and child alike'
The choice of school for your child is probably one of the most important decisions as a parent that you have to make. If you are considering sending your child to our school please make an appointment to visit us.
Brilliant fund raising for Ghana from one of our pupils!
Thanks to all of the families who contributed towards our sister school. Over the summer we will be sending Miss Rivero and her partner to undertake malaria screening and provide medical care where possible while also supporting the further building and development of the school.
So tomorrow will be our final day of raising money before she goes! After school you will have the opportunity to buy the last badges, some of the beautiful bracelets and necklaces (handmade in Ghana) or some of the things from the last ‘bring and buy’!!
At this time in the year we start to receive our academic results from the Department of Education. Although we await results for Year 2, we know that:
• Reception children achieved 20% higher results this year than achieved nationally last year.
• Year 1 achieved 22% higher results for the phonics screening than achieved nationally last year with 96% of Bar Hill Year 1 children passing the screening on the first attempt.
• Year 6 achieved the highest results out of all of the schools in the Swavesey cluster and, on average, 10% higher than national results in all of the tests. This makes Bar Hill students more likely to be ready for secondary school than any school in the area and most schools in the country.
Congratulations to the adults and children who worked hard to ensure fantastic learning and such impressive results.
Please note that results for individual children will be going out with their end of term reports. These results will come with a full explanation.
