Information about Priory Infant School “A small school with a big heart”

Priory Infant School is a two- form entry school in the heart of the seaside town of Ramsgate. The school was built just over 25 years ago and has 6 spacious classrooms and an extension which includes additional nurture/SEND rooms as well as a FLO office. The school is investing in redeveloping the outdoor play areas and has a dedicated wildlife area with a pond and vegetable plot. We have recently been awarded Nurture Schools status and fully believe in the ethos of a nurturing environment in order to support the needs of all our children. Priory Infant School works very well with parents and carers and this is central to our school ethos. We have a dedicated team of staff who provide a nurturing, supportive environment where our children are encouraged to be independent, resilient, creative and adventurous in their learning and aspirational in their lives. We are determined to ensure our children receive a broad, exciting curriculum where success is celebrated and nurtured with experiences offered above and beyond the National Curriculum. We aim to ensure our children are happy, enthusiastic and receive the very best start to their school life. The school serves a mixed catchment area resulting in a wide ranging, diverse cohort. Approximately 17% of our children receive SEND support in some form during their time with us and approximately 50% of our children are eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
We were recently visited by HMI In June 2023 where it was recognised that "pupils are happy to come to this friendly school where everyone is made to feel welcome and included." Please take time to read our full Ofsted report on our school website.

If you are willing to take on new challenges and are undeterred by hard work we would love you to join our fantastic team. The friendly atmosphere at Priory is palpable and we positively encourage you to come and experience this for yourself!
