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.
(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!
