Barlavento International
Primary School

Primary Education With Inspiration

Information for parents

Uniform and equipment

Our pupils are asked to wear grey polo shirts with our school name and logo on them, along with a comfortable pair of trousers, shorts or a skirt. The polo shirts are available to buy at cost price along with sweatshirts and caps.

As lessons frequently take place outside, we suggest that children have a waterproof jacket and pair of wellington boots which they can keep at school for rainy days and Agriculture lessons.

Water is available from dispensers throughout the school so we ask that pupils have refillable flasks.

A list of the stationery equipment is available on request and text books are provided by the school.

School meals

Healthy and nutritious school lunches are available to buy and more details of this year’s options will be available soon. This is not obligatory and children can bring a packed lunch from home. We provide free fruit for our pupils in the morning break.

Admissions and fees

The annual fee for the academic year beginning September 2020 is €6000. This amount includes full insurance for each student while they are under the supervision of Barlavento International Primary School teachers and staff. Fees can be paid in one of three ways:

  • annually, in advance
  • per term, in advance
  • in 10 equal monthly instalments

There is also an initial enrolment fee of €1500, €1200 of which will be returned when the student completes their education with us or if a term´s notice is given before withdrawal of a student from the school.
