Christmas celebrations will look a little different at Barry this year!

We want to make sure the children still feel the excitement of Christmas and we have been lucky enough to book a virtual panto which will be performed for all of the bubbles in school.

We have planned a Christmas Party day in each bubble and would like to share party food with the class.

Classes will also create Christmas crafts with the children.

Dates for these events will be shared soon along with information on what clothes to wear...party day is not the same in uniform!

Thank you so much for your support. The Barry Christmas Team!

Drop off and Collection Reminders

In light of the new lockdown; 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 multiple children to collect please wait on the playground and keep children with you.  

At this time children may not play on the equipment or in the garden.   Thank you for your continued support.

Thank you for wearing a face covering when on the school site.  We appreciate your continued support.

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.

    Dear Parents / Carers, Please can I remind you that if you enter through the top playground gate, you should exit through the car park gate, even if this is less convenient. In my observations this week, there are still many parents trying to exit out of the top gate going against the one-way flow put in place to enable us to stay open. What is disappointing is that some parents wait until they believe no member of staff is watching, sneaking through in the same way we might expect of children. As adults, you understand why we have to put these measures in place - so please follow the one way system to help keep our pupils, staff and other parents safe. If you are entering our premises, we would appreciate parents who are not exempt to wear face coverings to reduce the risk of transmitting any infection at the busiest times of our school day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this really important safety matter. Mr Brooks

    Anti-Bullying Week
    Dear Parent / Carer Monday, 16 November marks the start of Anti-Bullying Week across the UK. Every year at school during this week, we plan specific anti-bullying lessons to raise awareness and promote our school CARE ethos. To start the week with a bit of fun, we would like to invite the children to wear odd socks on Monday 16th November. There is a link to the anti-bullying alliance website to further explain: https://www.anti-bullyingalliance.org.uk/anti-bullying-week/odd-socks-day/what-odd-socks-day Thank you for your continued support.

    Children in Need
    Dear Parent / Carer, Please send your child in normal school uniform on Friday. We know that every year we have done something for Children in Need but this year we are aware that there are many families in our own school community that are finding things very difficult financially and we do not want to add to the pressure by doing a big dress up in return for donations. If you would still like to donate to this charity, please do so; details can be found on the Children in Need website. Thank you for your understanding. Mr Brooks

    Additional Measures during National Lockdown
    Dear Parents / Carers, Thank you to many families supporting our additional safety measures whilst we are in a national lockdown. We really appreciate those who are able to wear a face covering doing so. Please can I remind you not to allow your child on the large playground equipment before or after school - if you are waiting on the playground to collect a child from another year group, you need to keep your children with you as we are not permitted to mix year group bubbles outside of individual households. Once you have your children, please exit promptly so that we do not have larger groups than absolutely necessary, thank you. Stay safe and well. Will Brooks

    National Lockdown
    Dear Parents / Carers As you will be aware, there will be a national lockdown that comes into force on Thursday 5th November: Barry Primary will remain open to ALL pupils. At this moment in time, the Department of Education has not yet released the updated guidance to schools. Until official guidance is released, I would like to ask all parents / carers to support us by doing the following: Whilst lockdown is in place, please wear a face covering during drop off and collection. Only one adult per family to come to the school for drop off / collection. Ensure that you use the correct gates and the correct times for your child, following our one way systems. Keep 2 metres distance where possible Please do not come to the school office in person during drop off / collection times. As our families are so good at getting the children into school promptly, our gates will now shut at 9am. If you arrive after this time, please take you child to the main office. Our staff will now also have the option to wear face coverings on the playground during drop off / collection times only. Thank you for helping keep our school safe. Will Brooks
