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.

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.

Nativity tickets will be on sale from Monday 24th November at the cost of £1 each from the school office. Each family will be allowed 2 ticket, if any tickets are left these will be sold on a first come first served basis.

Posted: Saturday 22nd November: SWIMMING POOL IS NOW CLOSED

The Barham Primary School is now closed until the new year.  Swimming lessons will be replaced with additional PE sessions.  This does not apply to Year 6 who are still going to SLBS for their deep water swimming training.

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: Wednesday 5th November: CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME

This year we are all going to the Marlowe Theatre to watch Aladdin - 'oh no we're not!' . You can view the letter about our exciting trip and the permission slip here.  Please note that ALL children will require a packed lunch that day!

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!

Would you like to see some of our other recent achievements?

Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have.  Our contact details are on the left side of this page.

Thank you for visiting!
