Sir John Barrow School

Sir John Barrow School is a successful and inclusive nursery and primary school, in the very heart of the Ulverston community. It is our highest priority for all our children to succeed, enjoy their school life and experience a strong sense of belonging. We are proud of our children and they play a very active part in the running of their school.

At Sir John Barrow School we are committed to the success of all of our children and this includes academic success. Research clearly tells us that children’s success at primary school directly impacts their life chances. We take this responsibility very seriously. For this reason we have a sustained focus on teaching basic skills in reading, writing and maths, in addition to providing rich, relevant opportunities to practise these skills across the wider curriculum.

We ensure a consistent approach to the teaching of basic skills, whilst of course ensuring teaching strategies and programmes are age appropriate. This accelerates children’s learning and supports parent/carer involvement. We are also proud of our strong ‘learning’ links with the local high school, ensuring our children experience a smooth transition into the next stage of their education when the time comes.
