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 31st March: SWIMMING LESSONS

Swimming lessons will begin in the first week back after the Easter holidays.  These lessons are always thoroughly enjoyed and we are so fortunate to have the use of our own swimming pool.  Years 1 and 2 will swim every Wednesday, Years 3 and 4 will swim every Thursday and Years 5 and 6 will swim every Friday.  Year 5 will be swimming at SLBS as part of their deep water swimming training.  Please can we remind parents to send in a named swimming costume, towel and goggles (if needed).  Swimming costumes should be appropriate for school, a one-piece for girls and snug fitting (not Bermuda style) shorts or trunks for boys.  If your child uses goggles, please remember to send in a note to the class teacher providing your permission to do so.  This letter will cover the use of his/her goggles for the rest of the school year.  Thank you!

Posted: Monday 9th March 2015: MAN WANTED!

It's not often that we get to post a headline like that!!  Kent County Council have insisted that we take a man with us on our annual residential trip to Arethusa with the Year 5 children as all teaching staff are currently female.  Every year the Arethusa trip provides children with some of the most memorable primary school moments.  If you love being active and outdoors, would like to be involved with this trip and of course you are a man (!) who is available from 15th - 19th June then please get in contact with the school office.  For more information about Arethusa and the activities we will be participating in, please visit their website.

Posted: Friday 27th February 2015: DAFFODIL TEA

Our annual 'Daffodil Tea' will take place on Tuesday 31st March.  More details will be following shortly.


(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!
