in brief

  • TIMINGS

Thank you for making our new routines for dropping off and collection safe. Timings must be staggered in order to control the number of children and adults on site at the same time.

Drop off

8.45-8.55am Key Worker children (with existing places) only - main gate

8.55-9.05am Reception children only - top gate

9.05-9.15am Year 1 children only - main gate

9.15-9.30am Nursery children only - top gate

9.15-9.30am Year 6 children only - main gate

Collection - Please collect from the same gate used for drop off.

3.00-3.10pm Nursery and Year 6 children only

3.10-3.20pm Key worker children only

3.20-3.30pm Reception and Year 1 children only

  • KEY WORKER CHILDREN

We have now reached capacity in the Y2, Y3, Y4, & Y5 hubs for key worker children; the Government guidance is that schools are not permitted to exceed 15 children per class. We regret that we will not be able to offer any more places for key worker children in those year groups as we have reached the safe limit.

  • UNIFORM

As children are currently wearing non-uniform please ensure they come to school in appropriate clothing for workouts and dance sessions as well as sensible shoes.

  • HOME LEARNING PACKS

Home Learning Packs are available for collection from the School Office if you child has not returned to school.

  • LIBRARY BOOKS

Please return your school library books – there is a box outside the School Office for those children who are not in school.  For children at school, there will be boxes in each hub for library books to be returned to.

We really appreciate the challenges faced in these unprecedented times and we shall continue to keep you updated with any information as this becomes available. At this time, we cannot predict what September brings.... we are reliant on the decision-making of the Government to determine when children are allowed back to school safely.

We miss you all and really want to see our school family again as soon as we possibly can.

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.

    School Update 24th June 2020
    Dear Parents / Carers, Although there are various government announcements about changes to the Covid 19 response, this is just to confirm that our current provisions will remain the same until the end of the academic year. The school is open to all children in Year 1 and Year 6, as well as children with allocated places in nursery and reception. We are open to key worker / vulnerable children with existing places but please be aware we are now at the maximum numbers permitted in our classes and sadly we are not able to allocate further places due to being at full capacity. Our last day of term for children is Thursday 16th July. The school is closed on Friday 17th July. Thank you for your continued support with our new drop off and collection routines; it really does help us maintain a safe and happy environment for the children. Best wishes, Will Brooks Headteacher Barry Primary

    Whole School Update - 10/06/2020
    Dear Parents / Carers, As you may have already heard on the news, the Government yesterday made the announcement that schools will not open to wider pupils before the end of the academic year. For Barry Primary School, this means that we will continue to offer places for our key worker families who have existing places, as well as children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Sadly, we are not permitted to welcome back Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 or Year 5 at this time as nationally, it is not deemed safe for any school to do so. Home Learning packs will still be available to these year groups until the end of term. Over the next couple of weeks, parents of children currently not in school will receive a telephone call from the school offering your child the opportunity to have a chat with their class teacher. We very much hope to talk with as many children as possible now that we are in the position to do so. The school is closed on Thursday 11th June; we are looking at ways to reopen to all existing pupils attending in the next couple of weeks. Further information will be sent out shortly. We really appreciate the challenges faced in these unprecedented times and we shall continue to keep you updated with any information as this becomes available. At this time, we cannot predict what September brings.... we are reliant on the decision-making of the Government to determine when children are allowed back to school safely. But we miss you all and really want to see our school family again as soon as we possibly can. Until then, very best wishes to you all. Mr Brooks

    School Update - 22nd May 2020
    Dear Parent / Carer, Barry Primary School has been open throughout the past two months, providing education in person for vulnerable children and key workers’ children - in addition to providing education and pastoral care to those children at home. This has been a phenomenal task. The government has asked schools to prepare to begin to open for more children from 1st June in such a way that we minimise the risks to pupils, staff and parents as much as possible. To decide what is feasible, Northamptonshire County Council asked schools to carry out an initial comprehensive risk assessment so that leaders can evaluate potential solutions on how they can safely and effectively accommodate eligible pupils. Schools, in the first instance, were asked to take a phased approach to how many pupils they take back and from when. Northamptonshire County Council will support schools to work towards gradually increasing pupil numbers at a pace their individual circumstances allow. As you are aware, Barry Primary School will be closed to all pupils on Thursday as we put things in place to safely accommodate every child from eligible year groups from 1st June. It is important that we offer what we can to all our families. It is our aim to reopen five days a week as soon as it is safe and possible to do so but at this time, the school cannot provide you with a specific date as to when this will be. We will continue to review the provisions we can offer in such a way that we minimise the risks to pupils, staff and parents as much as possible. When we can safely open to all pupils on Thursdays, we shall communicate this at the earliest opportunity. Kind regards,

    Social story and guidelines for parent re school opening
    Dear Parents/Carers We know that many of you with children returning to school in the week beginning Monday, 1st June will be worried about this and we want to reassure you that we have been, and will continue to, make school as safe as possible for all of them. In order to support the children with the changes to school due to social distancing measures, we have produced the attached social story and some guidelines on how to use this. I would recommend reading this story once a day with your child/children between now and the day they are due to return. In order to be effective, social stories need to be read daily over a sustained period of time. This story will also be available on the school website. Kind regards Nadine Barrie Deputy Headteacher/Inclusion Manager

    School Update
    Dear Parent / Carer We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to school when the Government decides it is safe to do so. This week we paid tribute to the NHS with a one minute silence at 11am on Tuesday and all the staff have been involved in making a video for you which we hope to be able to add to the website next week. Our Home Learning page is updated every week with school activities, useful documents to read which include hints and tips for young people and a special guide for parents. Also, look out for a competition to design a Christmas Bear. Take care everyone, we miss you.
