All the children in KS1 put on an amazing performance in this year's Nativity!
Barham CE Primary School is a busy church school where we aim to give each child a good all-round education, Christian values, and a broad experience of life. We are 6 miles south of Canterbury, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We hope you enjoy looking at what we do at our school.

Posted: Tuesday 16th December: CHILDREN IN NEED CHRISTMAS OUTFIT / JUMPER
Tomorrow (wednesday 17th) children are invited to come to school wearing a Christmas outfit or jumper for the whole day in exchange for £1 which will be dinated to Children in Need. If the children are wearing a Christmas jumper then they do not need to wear school uniform underneath, it is totally NON-UNIFORM with a Christmas flavour!
Posted: Tuesday 16th December: NATIVITY DVD'S
The Nativity DVD's are now available to purchase from the school office at a cost of £2.50 each - a great stocking filler!

KS2 are rehearsing for our carol service which will be held on Tuesday 16th December at St John's Church in Barham at 7pm. Permission slips will be sent home shortly so you can indicate whether or not your child is able to attend.
Posted: Saturday 22nd November: SCHOOL COOL MILK
Your child will have brought home a leaflet about registering for school milk. This is organised by 'Cool Milk'. The scheme will begin on Tuesday 6th January and all payments and registration should be done online direct with Cool Milk, rather than through the school office. Thank you.
Posted: Friday 14th November: CHANGES TO SWIMMING AND PE and OWLS KIT
There have been some changes to PE and swimming days for some classes. Please check the PE and Swimming page to see which classes are affected. OWLS are advised to have a pair of black or navy jogging bottoms in their PE bag, as we go straight out to play after PE and will need to keep legs warm. Thank you!
Posted: Tuesday 28th October: NEW CURRICULUM MEETING NOTES
On 23rd October we hosted an evening for parents to explain how the new National Curriculum changes would be implemented at Barham Primary School. Whilst we had many parents who attended the evening there were plenty who could not make it due to other constraints. Therefore we have compiled a document of handouts and slides from the evening which can be downloaded here.
Posted: Thursday 23rd October: PARENT PARKING
We have received complaints from some Barham residents that several cars are being parked inconsiderately during the school run. Please can we ask that you park only in suitable places so that the safety of pedestrians and other road users is not compromised, even if that means parking further away from the school. Examples of bad parking can be found here and here.
(You can see more of our amazing school and work in the 'Picture Galleries' link of the left.)
Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.
The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'
No wonder we are so proud of our school!
