Barrow CEVC Primary School is a small primary school, located on Colethorpe Lane in Barrow, Suffolk, near Bury St Edmunds. It caters for children in Reception to Year 4. It has an Outstanding rating from both Ofsted and SIAS (the Church Schools Inspection Body).

At Barrow Primary School, every child’s educational, personal and spiritual development is important to us.

As we know from personal experience, all children are individuals. They grow both physically and emotionally at different rates. As a small village school, we are able to take an individual approach to child’s education.

As a church school, we follow a Christian Values programme which flows throughout the school day. We explore 12 key values, including compassion, friendship and thankfulness. We learn about British Values and enjoy exploring the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural aspects of the curriculum, which prepare our children to be positive and active members of society.

It is in the primary school setting that everyone’s ‘formal’ educational journey really begins. So it is important to get this first step right. Here, we have experienced and dedicated staff who make learning fun, as well as teaching Literacy and Numeracy, very skilfully. We also pride ourselves on having a relaxed caring ‘family’ atmosphere in the school with the learners showing caring behaviour not only to their classmates but also to older and younger members of the school.
