Teachers at a Suffolk primary school dug into their fancy dress collections for their annual pantomime last week.

Staff from Barrow Primary School performed their take on Sleeping Beauty, co-written by assistant headteacher David Barrett and the school’s IT support manager Mark Denny, who also directed the show.

The school and local community have been out in force to support a run of three performances last week at the Barrow Village Hall.

One parent, Jordanna Campbell, described the show as “sublime comedy that sets a very good example to the children”.

Headteacher Helen Ashe spoke this week about her pride in the performances, which will raise funds for the school.

“I feel very fortunate to work with such great people,” she said. “It’s not only the teachers up there on the stage that make me proud but all the support from our Parent Teacher Association, parents, volunteers, teaching assistants and office staff who make such a fabulous show possible.”
