Welcome to Barns Green Primary School

We are a happy and successful primary school, set in the heart of rural Barns Green, Sussex. We’re passionate about the well-being of our children and their learning.

Our values of Respect, Responsibility, Perseverance, Compassion, Community and Inclusion underpin everything we do. You can find out more about our Values and our Vision here.

We have a state-of-the-art school building, designed to 21st-century standards, built in 2015. The building boasts generous classrooms and play spaces to create a stimulating environment for our pupils. The inside space is bright and airy and flooded with natural daylight. There is easy access to outdoor spaces, and we encourage outdoor learning in extensive playgrounds and fields and ‘forest school’.

Year 6 were lucky enough to have a real Bridge Engineer visit today to talk to them an inspire them prior to them embarking on a bridge design project in small groups.

Mr Brock gave them an insight into his job and lots of things to think about when designing a strong bridge.

Their bridge needs to be strong enough to hold the most 2 pence pieces! They have experimented with the number of layers, the shape of their bridge, using concertinas and using triangles within their initial protypes.

Thank you so much for giving your time to us today. 🌁🌉

Last week Otter Class learned more about birds native to the UK.

We practised our axe cutting skills, working as a team, to split our wood slices in half.

We then created "rocking birds" by observing carefully the colour patterns on the bird's plumage.

Wednesday, was Rev.Sandra's final assembly at Barns Green.

She has been supporting the children with their Worship for many years and has been a vital part of the school community.

We wish her all the best in the New Forest. She will be missed by both staff and children.

Well done to everyone who participated in the tag rugby tournament this afternoon. It was a real team effort, and the standard of play from all schools was extremely high.

We came joint 2nd, 3rd place overall in terms of tries awarded.
The team went home very muddy and I hope feeling really proud of themselves!

Well done Barns Green!!

Squirrel class have started learning about landscape art.

For our first lesson we made our own viewfinders to help us focus on the area we were sketching.
