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.

Headteacher Appointment

After a thorough recruitment process, the Full Governing Body has ratified the appointment of Janette Quinn to the post of Headteacher to start in April after the Easter holiday. Mrs Quinn will bring much strength to the school and it is with great confidence that governors appointed her to take the school forward during what promises to be an exciting future as we become an Academy and continue to build on our great achievements.

Dr Mistrano will leave the school in a very strong position and governors continue to work closely with him to ensure the transition between head teachers together with our conversion to an academy on or after June 1st, 2018 are both seamless.

Martenitsas are made of red and white strings/like this on the swallow’s leg/. The red colour is for “life/birth” and the white is for hope, clear, new beginning.

Tuesday, 6 March we will be hosting an evening during which we discuss with parents and carers how we manage behaviour and bullying at the school. During the evening there will be presentations as well as time for parents and carers to feedback ways we can make things even better at school. The event starts at 3:45 (just after the book sale) – we look forward to seeing all parents and carers there. For the event we will be providing childcare. It would be very helpful if parents and carers could let us know if they will be attending and also if childcare is needed please indicate both these options on the parent mail form which was sent out Tuesday 27th February 2018 or please let the school office know. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to accept requests for childcare at the event so please do let us know in advance if childcare will be needed.

Dear Parents/Carers, Tuesday, 6 March to finish Celebrating Reading and Writing Week, the Student Council have planned a second hand book sale with the money raised going to our sister school in Atewasi, Ghana. We are trying to complete the building of a water filtration system so that the children can have clean water at the school. We are only £500 away from reaching our goal so very much appreciate the support of families with this very worthy event. The Book Sale will be on 15.00pm – 15.45pm in the School Hall, please come along. Regards School Office

The School Council have decided to hold a second hand book sale next Tuesday, 6 March. The aim of the book sale is to raise money for our sister school in Atewasi, Ghana. The representatives from each class on the School Council will be running the book sale and have asked the children in every class to bring donations of second hand books for the rest of our Celebrating Reading and Writing Week – these books need to be in a good condition for people to purchase next week. All donations should go to classrooms so that school representatives from each class can collect them and add them to the stock. The Student Council appreciate the show of love made by each donation for our friends in Ghana!

Bar Hill takes third out of 30 teams at the county hockey tournament and, more importantly, was awarded as the team that played most “in the spirit of the games”. High achievement is wonderful, but demonstrating our values to hundreds of other young people in the county in such an impressive way is even better.
