Barrow 1618

A Church of England Free School

English, Reading and Writing


We inspire every child to be happy, confident, self-motivated and resilient so that they achieve personal success. We believe that a secure basis in literacy skills is crucial to a high quality education and will give our children the tools they need to participate fully as a member of society.

Through a creative approach, we aim for each child to achieve the highest standard they possibly can. A quality English curriculum should develop a children’s love of reading, writing and discussion. The school values of curiosity, resilience, teamwork, ambition, care and respect underpin everything that we do in school. We believe that children need to develop a secure knowledge-base in English, which follows a clear pathway of progression as they advance through the primary curriculum. 

We want children to leave our school, fully equipped with the literacy skills to achieve their dreams in future life and have memories of their literacy journey at Barrow 1618 that last a life-time.
