Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School Learning for Life

Community

We deeply value and appreciate our links with the wider community – locally and further afield.

Music

  • Maybury Open Door – a drop in centre for adults with learning difficulties.  Children give a concert twice a year and socialise with clients afterwards.
  • Infant Music Festival – this year we coordinated 5 events including 15 schools and almost 800 Y2 pupils from across the town
  • Junior Music Festival – we help to organise this annual event and Mr Burles can usually be found at the piano accompanying the singing

Reading

  • Reading volunteers – from Pearsons – who regularly come in their lunch hour to listen to our children read and support them
  • Parent reading volunteers – who have been through our training programme, got their certificate and regularly spend time in school

Art

  • Gibberd Garden – every year some classes walk down to the garden
  • Harlow Fine Arts Society – we commenced a 3-year partnership in 2016

Schools

  • Harlowbury – our nearest neighbour primary school.  Our Reception children love to visit each other for events such as Chinese New Year and Easter craft activities
  • Soeur Emmanuelle – we have been getting to know children in our partner school through Skype chats
