Welcome to Barham
Barham Primary School is situated in a residential area near to Wembley High Road and Ealing Road. We are a large four-form entry school admitting children from the age of 3 to 11 years. The original building dates from the 1930s. In 1991 the building was doubled in size by the completion of a new wing.
In April 2003 a new sports hall and music suite were completed. This has made the school a very spacious, bright and welcoming place.
Classes are no larger than 30 and we have additional rooms for ICT, small group music tuition, a library and nursery. We have extensive playgrounds, a large field and a nature area.
Our children, mainly from the immediate local area, come from a variety of backgrounds, faiths and races. We are a multi-cultural school and proud to be so. We actively encourage a working partnership between parents and school in the belief that this leads to higher standards and the general well being of all children in the school.
Our Governing Body
The Governing Body is responsible for many important decisions in the running of the school, catering to the needs of the whole school community, and all its stakeholders. Governors support the school to ensure that all its statutory duties are met and the school provides the best environment for learning.
These duties include:
- Appointing the Headteacher and the teaching staff
- Agreeing the aims of the school curriculum and ensuring they are implemented
- Agreeing how the school’s budget is to be used each year
- Deciding how relationship education and religious education should be taught in the school
- Dealing with official complaints and exclusions
- Deciding what charges should be made for activities outside school hours
- Ensuring the school complies with the equality duties set out in Government legislation
- Setting targets for pupils’ performance and submitting results to the Local Authority (LA)
A current list of Governors is available on request from the school office and can be viewed on our website. You can contact the Governing Body by writing to the chair of Governors via the school office. Governors also welcome thoughts, ideas and issues that parents would like to discuss with them.
