Posted: Friday 7th March: EXTREME READING COMPETITION!
I am challenging all staff and all of your children to send in a photo of themselves reading – I am looking for the most obscure and entertaining place that the pupils and staff can be caught reading and will then create a display of the photos that are sent in – you can either email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send in a hard copy.

Posted: Tuesday 4th February: NAILBOURNE SEWAGE ALERT
Due to heavy rainfall and rising groundwater foul water is now being pumped into the Nailbourne at Elham. Therefore the Nailbourne is contaminated with sewage as it flows through Barham. Aside from the safety aspect, children and pets should not be allowed into or near the water for hygiene reasons. Further information regarding the flooding can be found on the following website: http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/floods/34681.aspx?area=064FWF6A7 .

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!
