Head teacher message

Welcome from the Headteacher

On behalf of the children, staff and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to our school, where we look forward to a close relationship between home and school to bring about the best possible education for your child.

Babraham is one of the smallest primary school in Cambridgeshire and, we believe, 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.

Babraham is a school of positive personal development, where the real joy of learning is fostered.  We have developed the curriculum so that we are able to extend our creativity and encourage children to take a responsibility for their learning, to be imaginative and apply knowledge and skills in a range of different contexts.  Our children are enthusiastic, confident and excellent ambassadors for our school.

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. Ofsted 2013

In October 2013 Ofsted acknowledged our school was an Outstanding school.

Our school, only a few miles from Cambridge is set in beautiful countryside.  We welcome children 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.

We welcome new families to our school and we are always delighted to show parents and children around, for it is by visiting us that you can really appreciate what we offer.  If you would like to visit our school, please do get in touch.
