Reception Children for September 2021

"Meet and Greet" - Friday, 16th July 2021.  3.30pm - 4.30pm. 

This end of year event will be an opportunity to informally get together with parents and children of our Reception classes.  You will be informed of your child's class teacher at this time.  We look forward to meeting you.

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.

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.

    End of Year activities
    Dear Parents / Carers, In light of delays to the Covid recovery road map, we have made changes to some of our normal end of year activities. We have plans for modified transition events so children can meet their new teachers and visit their new classrooms, along with some different end of term events before the summer break. This year we will be doing a scaled down version of sports days within year groups for the children to participate and enjoy engaging in friendly team events within their bubbles. Unfortunately we will be unable to host these events to accommodate parents / carers this year. We very much look forward to having a return to a more normal life in school and hope that next academic year enables us to invite our community to share in our school events. In the meantime, stay safe. Mr Brooks Headteacher
