Posted: Thursday 12th June: NEW PHONE NUMBER
Occasionally we have power cuts at Barham which results in our landline phones no longer being operational. We now have a school mobile phone which can be used in such circumstances so that parents can contact the school if required. This number is 07745 269968. It should be noted that this phone is used for emergencies only and that it will not be regularly switched on so please do not use this number in place of the normal school number. Please continue to send emails or messages to the normal school addresses as the mobile phone will not be checked for text messages. Thank you!
Posted: Wednesday 4th June: CHRISTMAS PANTOMIME!
Yes, you read that correctly, we are already planning the school trip to the Christmas pantomime! This year we will be going to the Marlowe Theatre to see the production of Aladdin so please bear this in mind when booking your family theatre trips to avoid seeing the same show twice!
(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!
