We have reached the final half-term of the school year 2024 and as always, it is a busy time in school with the end of year events, as well as some welcomes and goodbyes for our staff.  We welcome Mr Durham, Harvey’s Dad, as our new Caretaker/Cleaner and we know that the children will make him welcome.

Also, after seven years at our school, Mrs Alnajjar is moving on from Barlow in September. Mrs Alnajjar joined us in 2017, at a time when we had 46 children on roll, two classes and no nursery. She was part of the team that secured the 'Good' Ofsted rating in 2019 and supported the growth of our nursery in Class 1 when we moved to a three class structure. She has given her all to our school and we are incredibly grateful for her dedication and for the positive impact that she has had on the education of our children. However, after many years, Mrs Alnajjar is ready for her next step, and we wish her all the best.  Please click on the PDF to read the full newsletter.
