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.

    Reminder about Collection and Drop off Time
    Dear Parents / Carers, This is a polite reminder that after you have collected or dropped off your child, please exit the school straight away unless you need to speak with your child's teacher. We have had a number of parents "gathering" on the playground after their child has been collected, as well as a number of parents allowing their child to play on the school playground equipment. Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow this and continuing to do so puts the school at risk of closure. We want to remain open to educate these lovely children. Please help us to do so by keeping to the rules. Thank you. Will Brooks Headteacher Barry Primary

    No Nuts in School
    Dear Parents / Carers Firstly, no school can guarantee a truly peanut/nut-free environment however, as we have some children in school who suffer from a severe nut allergy please could I take this opportunity to remind everyone that the following items should not be brought into school. Peanuts Peanut butter sandwiches Nutella/chocolate spread sandwiches Fruit and cereal bars that contain nuts Sesame seed rolls Cakes made with nuts This list is not exhaustive, so please check the packaging of products closely. Thank you for your co-operation.

    Welcome Back
    Dear Parents/Carers, And we're back.... this morning we had a staggering 96% of our children return to school. It did feel quite an emotional moment for staff at Barry Primary seeing children and families again... despite the long and challenging journey we've all been on to reach this point, children are back where they belong - learning with their friends and supported by families, the school and each other. As you will appreciate, our school site only has two entrances and we are a large primary. Even with staggered start times and dedicated gates, this still means there will be a lot of families arriving at school together. We will naturally be monitoring the "flow" of drop off and collection over the next few weeks to ensure we get things working as smoothly as possible. Day one will always be the hardest but the new routines will quickly become normal for us all. To help us, please keep to your timings and gates, following the one-way systems and only one adult to help reduce unnecessary numbers at our gates, thank you. Our school website has all the information on the home page for easy access. Any other queries, please send an email to the school office. For parents using KidsStop wrap around care, please notify KidsStop directly if your child attendance is different from what is expected. It will be no surprise for you to learn that I have been visiting classes throughout the day to see how everyone is doing - the children settled back so quickly and it's been an absolutely joy seeing so many happy, smiling faces. Your children are an absolute credit - we are overjoyed to have them back in school. Mr Brooks, Headteacher
