Welcome to the Isham CEVA Primary School web site.


Welcome to the family of Isham Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School.

The school has been a feature of the parish of Isham since 1840 and provides for pupils aged 4-11 years both from the Parish of Isham and beyond.

The Governors, staff, parents and children are committed to developing a positive, challenging learning environment in which all pupils can achieve their full potential.

This aim is to be cherished by all who join the caring Christian family of our school.


Following our fantastic school trip to Everdon last Friday, I would love to know your thoughts on the day. Please add a comment to this message and think about these questions when writing your post!

  1. What was your best bit and why?
  2. What did you learn?

I can’t wait to read your posts! Good luck!

Performance data/ league tables 2014

Isham in top 149 schools in UK

Today I received a letter from Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools. A copy of the letter is displayed on the class notice boards and I quote,

‘It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on the excellent performance of your pupils in the 2014 KS2 tests…

Your results show that 100% of your pupils gained Level 4B or above in reading and maths and Level 4 or above in writing. This makes you one of only 149 schools in the country to achieve this level of attainment.

I would like to congratulate your staff, governors and pupils for their hard work and success and thank you for your leadership in continuing the drive towards high standards of educational achievement.’
