Hooray! So much change at Mersham over the past few months….where to begin?

We now have a brand new hall; an amazing space for all to enjoy. The children are enjoying having the extra space in Breakfast Club, assemblies and P.E. lessons and it has meant that Mersham Monkeys (our toddler group) can start again. 

The space that used to be the old hall has been converted into our Year 5 and 6 classrooms, making it all feel more cosy and included with them being in the main school building and not across the other side of the playground in the mobile classrooms. 


Our ICT suite has enjoyed a makeover as well and all new computers, desks and stools are being installed. 

Mrs Sly, Miss Wheeler and the Librarians are now busy making the library an inviting place to curl up with a book!

We are all feeling very fortunate to eb part of this huge chapter in Mersham Primary School’s history and are looking forward to making these new spaces even better with new displays of children’s amazing work.

Damian Green

We were pleased to welcome the Rt Hon Damian Green to the school to present Rebekah in Year 5 with her prize for winning a poster competition organised through a project called Litter Angels. Rebekah’s poster encouraged people to pick up their litter and was part of a wider competition across all Ashford schools. Well done Rebekah!

Damien Green’s visit also gave children in Year 5 and 6 a brilliant opportunity to find out more about how the country is run and what the job of an MP involves. They came up with some fantastic questions and found out how to become an MP, what the job entails as well as getting an insight into some little known facts about Parliament.

Did you know that in the cloakroom, all MPs have a hanger with their name on that also has a pink ribbon attached, which historically was used for hanging up your sword! In addition, Damian Green was happy to answer some more challenging questions from the children about the Downing Street parties! A fantastic learning opportunity for all.
