Babraham Church of England (VC) Primary School is one of the smallest primary schools in Cambridgeshire and, it is believed, one of the best. One of the joys of a small school is that every child is known and their talents and strengths, whether academic, social, sporting or artistic can be recognised and celebrated. No one is ever overlooked.
The school is at the edge of the village within its own extensive grounds and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Children are welcome to Babraham from a wide area that includes not only our immediate locality but also extends to all parts of the world so we feel we are a global community and we all benefit from understanding different experiences.
Pupils’ attainment is consistently well above average in English and Mathematics. All children make excellent progress during their time in the school because teaching is outstanding.

Babraham school are excited to let you know about a new event this summer on 8th July, the Babraham Colour Festival. As part of a fun, family day, there will be a “Colour Run”. Please read the website for all the details and to sign up: www.babrahamevents.co.uk
There is a priority sign-up window for Babraham School families until Friday 19th May. After that entries will open for others outside school too.
We hope all Babraham families will join in so that we can really make this a wonderful whole-school event and raise valuable funds for our children in school at the same time. We need your support! Please sign up to run/walk/jog, or to volunteer.
Tickets can be purchased on the website or by handing the attached booking form in to the school office. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £8 for children, which includes a t-shirt and medal.
Please be informed that from March 20th the school will have contractors in extending the toilets in reception / Year 1 and extending the lobby to make it more secure. This may cause some congestion in the mornings through the village but the building is small scale and should not cause too many problems.
Friends of Babraham School’s main event this term will be Bonfire and Fireworks night on Saturday November the 8th 2014. Gates open at 5:30 with Fireworks at 6pm. Tickets are available from Lorraine Penney at 17 Oak Lane (tel. 665 368) or from the school office.
