Barrs Court Primary School was last visited by HM Inspectors in October 2017. We were judged by Ofsted to be a GOOD school, effective in delivering outcomes that provide well for all its pupils needs. As well as lessons being observed, the inspection team heard pupils read, examined work in their books, attended assemblies and observed activities in the playground and dinner hall.
