Welcome to Barry Primary School

Mr Will Brooks, Headteacher

It is my privilege as Headteacher to extend a warm welcome to the Barry Primary website and thank you for visiting. Our school not only strives for high academic standards for children, but we also have the ambition for everyone that is part of our school to achieve their fullest potential in a far broader sense, celebrating creativity, individuality, integrity and diversity.

We are proud of having a long history of putting children at the heart of everything we do and of the close-knit, supportive “family-feel” that visitors to our school always comment on; it is this CARE that forms an integral part of our school vision and values.

Our dedicated staff team, our wonderful children and the excellent relationships that exist between all members of the school community have helped us to achieve our Good status. This website aims to celebrate the broad range of opportunities and achievements at our school, as well as further contributing to the partnership that exists within our lovely learning community.

We hope that you enjoy the site and are as proud of our children’s achievements as we are.


In order to open fully and remain open, we have to ensure we have strict measures in place to protect pupils and staff as much as is reasonably possible. If we cannot meet the safety requirements, we will have to limit the number of children in school at any given time.

Our risk assessment measures include:

  • Do not come to school if any member of the household has Covid symptoms.
  • One adult per household only entering the site with a face covering unless medically exempt.
  • Staggered start and end times for all pupils that everyone follows. These may have changed, so please check carefully the details below.
  • Clear one-way systems on site.
  • No gatherings in school or at the school gates. Adults (not children) are expected to socially distance.

These are the five steps most relevant to parents / carers; it really does make a difference to whether we can safely open in full or whether we have to limit the number of children to be Covid compliant. As always, I will put the safety of your children and of staff as the highest priority without exception.

We look forward to welcoming you back for what we all hope is the end to lockdown forever! 

See you soon :)

Stay safe.

Drop off and collection times - please respect social distancing measures - thank you.

To prevent paths crossing please can all Parents/Carers, no matter which gate you enter, please LEAVE by the car park gate.

If you have children in different Year Groups please follow your childs earliest time/entrance.  

At this time children may not play on the equipment or in the garden.   

Thank you for wearing a face mask and social distancing when you are on the school grounds. 

We appreciate your continued support.

In the morning, gates will open at 8.45 and close at 9.00 and in the afternoon, gates will open at 3.00 and close at 3.20.  Please come to the School Office if you are late.
