About Us



Barrow CEVC Primary School is an outward-facing, outstanding primary that works in partnership with other schools to improve leadership, teaching and learning through ConnectED@Barrow. It has offered high quality teacher training, professional development and school-to-school support since 2012.

ConnectED@Barrow collaborates with two Initial Teacher Training providers – Suffolk & Norfolk SCITT and Cambridge Teaching Schools Network (CTSN) – to offer school-based teacher training to graduates in Suffolk. It also offers school placements to teacher trainees based at Cambridge University’s Faculty of Education.

ConnectED@Barrow works in partnership with a range of CPD providers – such as Angles Maths Hub, The Suffolk Computing Hub and Suffolk LA – to offer a comprehensive CPD programme tailored to local needs. Over 95% of participants who have provided evaluation feedback feel that the CPD will have a positive impact on their future practice.

Barrow CEVC Primary teachers, and other outstanding teachers associated with ConnectED@Barrow, provide bespoke school-to-school support, as well as professional mentoring and coaching for individual teachers, which has a direct impact on outcomes for pupils.
