Welcome

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.

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.

Request from Class 1 and Class 2

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please could the two Reception classes have any old saucepans, fying pans, pots, wooden spoons, cheese graters etc you are no longer using. They would like them for their outside music making and outdoor kitchen area.

Please give them to your child's class teacher who will pass them on to us.

Many thanks for your support,
Mrs Bailham and Mrs Rivero

Unfortunately, we have just learned that our sister school in Ghana has been forced to close temporarily after massive destruction due to a sever storm. We all remember the Bar Hill floods and the turmoil it caused us so the children have been challenged with showing our learning value of Initiative by figuring out ways we can support the children and staff at our sister school. Miss Rivero has also introduced her trip this summer to Ghana during which she'll be helping with some of the building and resourcing of the school while her partner does malaria screening and other medical checks. All families are welcome to take part in the support work and children will be given an opportunity to buy special badges created by Miss Rivero as a sign of their concern for the children in our sister school.

The Year 5 had a great time undertaking lots of geographical work on their walk to Lolworth this morning (along with avoiding a rogue cow!).

This included learning how to walk on a compass bearing as well as following their own routes they had plotted from six figure grid references!
