Aims & Ethos

At Barham Church of England Primary School we aim to provide a nurturing, happy and secure community. We want every child at the school to feel success yet not be afraid of failure, to be confident and to have high expectations of themselves. We also want our children to feel a sense of responsibility, to be caring and respectful of others and their environment.

Vision statement

Barham is a vibrant, inclusive and high-achieving primary school with a family feel at the heart of the local and church community. We are committed to supporting each child to be confident, kind and curious. Our curriculum is broad, engaging and supports everyone to flourish as God intends.
