Summer Term has begun!
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 1st April: BAGS 2 SCHOOL RETURNS
This is your opportunity to get rid of old clothes, toys, bags etc. Just fill the bag and return it to school for collection on May 1st. The school is then paid per weight of materials received. Previously we have received £300 for a single collection so it's an easy way to raise money for the school and have a clear out at home. More information about Bags2School can be found here.
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 (email@example.com) or send in a hard copy.
(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!
