    Hi All Just testing the new site! One thing to note on the homepage the 'Arrange a Visit' has a spelling mistake it states 'vist' but I am sure you are aware of this! I love the site very fresh! Julie Swain

    Hi, Late as usual I have only just seen and started to use the new site. It's great. Clear, bright, user friendly informative and interactive - just what was needed. Thank you. One little thing, on this reply page the Captcha comes after the submit button. If, like me, you automatically press the submit you lose all the data you input and have to start again. If it can't be moved, it may be worth putting in a sentence telling the user to input the numbers/letters as seen before submitting your reply. While I'm here is there an update on whether or not dinner money could be paid electronically - a standing order each month would be useful with my memory..... Thanks Tara

    I have added a note at top of page re Captcha - thank you for pointing this out. Unfortunately, parents responded overwhelmingly against paying the fees for electronic payments, which is something we cannot afford to do at the moment. We will continue to look for a better deal from providers and hope that one day this is a service we can provide. Glad you like the new website.

    Good morning Mr Hunt, Tara and I would just like to congratulate everyone involved in last nights superb production.It was without doubt the best effort that the children have made to date and was most definitly on another level. The most delightful aspect was the fact that all the children and audience seemed to be fully involved and truly enjoying themselves in a rare and very refreshingly patriotic and respectful way.As you noted,this was a great way to bring history and a whole range of life issues to children in an inspiring way. It is a great pity that the ofsted bods were not privy to this fine display of the schools achievements! I will leave a comment on their page,just for the record.Anyway once again well done to you and your staff and of course the children,this is why we are so pleased that Ava has the opportunity to be schooled at Harrowbarrow regards Brian.

    Probably an impossible suggestion but I hope you don't mind me asking... is there anyway that there could be staggered class start / finish time in order to help alleviate pressure on parking at the village hall. As it does cause issues with buses/tractors passing. Also in general entering/exiting the car park is bedlam at best. I know that the school has tried to encourage walking/cycling to school - but we are fully aware that only a few will have the time to do this. Thank you for your time.

      Good afternoon, Apologies for the delay in replying but we tend not to check the comments section of the website as often as we do direct emails, which are viewed daily. Please feel free to email directly via or and you will be guaranteed a quicker response. The parking issue at the village hall is a perennial one and one we have never been able to find a solution for. We have considered staggered start and finish times but the issue is that many of our families have children in more than one class, making this problematic. If you do think of a solution, please let me know as we are open to any suggestion that would help. Kind regards. Andrew Hunt Headteacher
