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.

Free Guitar Lessons for Y5/6

Further to my post on 23 January re Y3/4 Guitar…thought i’d let you know we have managed to secure the same deal for our Y5/6 class…they were insanely jealous last week and asked me to do what I could for them!!

They started their lessons yesterday and are now looking forward to a combined guitar concert with Y3/4 at the end of this term (that’s assuming they will all be able to play tunefully by then)!

I’ll let you know concert dates as soon as we have some!

Chinese New Year: Monday 4th February

The Yumeijin Restaurant in Wellingborough has kindly agreed to provide Chinese food for all our children on Monday 4th February, as part of our Chinese New year celebrations.

Our whole school will be celebrating Chinese New Year on all day on Monday, starting with Assembly then all our lessons and culminating in a chinese feast at about 2pm.

We’re now on the hunt for chinese decorations / table cloths and 110 pairs of chopsticks! If you can help with that request, we’d be very grateful!

Special thanks to the two Mums for organising the food for us, and for providing fortune cookies for everyone!

Remember to wear chinese clothing or red party clothes on Monday!

Free Guitar Classes for Y3/4

A new government initiative seeks to ensure all primary school children have the chance to learn to play a musical instrument and, with effect from today, our Y3/4 class will begin a ten week course in guitar.

Mr Oliver will teach the class, ably supported by our very own Kathryn Martin!

An hours lesson will take place every Thursday afternoon. All children will be provided with a guitar although, if children already have guitar lessons (either with Brad in school, or outside of school), they are welcome to bring their own guitar in each week.

There is no cost to parents for this tuition. Should your child wish to continue guitar after the ten week period, Brad Overton is always willing to take on new students. He teaches in school every friday. For me details pop in and talk to Sue Wood or me!


Bethlehem Baby!

The children at Isham this year performed an excellent production of Bethlehem Baby. The entire school acted and sang beautifully to tell the nativity story. Take a look at the gallery below to see some snapshots of their performance!
