Our Community

The Gawber Community


Gawber Primary School is situated in the lovely little village of Gawber in Barnsley.


Gawber children love to work with the Gawber community. 

We are a #caringfamilyschool 

Performing for the Gawber Community 

This year, our Year 5 and 6 children took part in two Christmas-light-switch-on events! They joined local people from the community, singing festive songs, making festive crafts and spreading festive cheer as the lights on the trees were switched on. 





Age UK Barnsley 

Our children wrote messages to those who are lonely at Christmas, hoping to spread some festive cheer. We are always thinking of others. 



Barnsley Hospice 

We try our best to help raise money for Barnsley Hospice. The hospice is just a short walk from school and so each time we raise some money, we take a walk to deliver it to our friends at Barnsley Hospice. We work with them to do different fundraising events in school and we help to promote their fundraising events too. 



The Gawber History Group

Our School Council work together with the Gawber History Group to learn all about the history of our lovely village. 


St Thomas Church

Our church is at the bottom of our school drive. We love to visit the church and take part in special services.

Our friends at Greenworks Plus volunteer at our school, helping to enhance our outdoor environment. 



We work with Twigs to help improve our environment! Here we are planting bulbs.
