Information about the school

Jubilee Primary School is a mainstream free school with a Christian faith ethos that opened in Maidstone in 2014 and was rated Outstanding by Ofsted at its first inspection. The school admits pupils from all faiths and none, from ages 4 to 11 and has a role of 330 pupils from Reception to Year 6.

Our holistic vision of education raises standards for all its pupils by nurturing their physical, social and educational needs, within a caring community that promotes, shares and develops key Christian values such as respect, integrity, compassion, honesty, service, forgiveness, putting others first, giving your best and perseverance. Staff not only encourage these values but also model them, acknowledging that pupils are more likely to emulate the behaviour that they see being modelled.

We aim to develop the character of every child and equip them for lifelong learning through a broad and balanced education, underpinned by our four key values: purpose, community, skilled for life and nurture. These aspects, coupled with a strong work ethic and an enriching, inspiring learning environment, make us confident that every child will achieve their best.

Our passion is to foster an excitement and love for learning across all areas of the curriculum, drawing out and developing each child’s individual gifts and talents. At the core of our vision is the premise that the quality of relationships experienced by a child during their primary schooling has a deep and lasting impact on their future development. Our core values define the way we will care for, enrich and teach every child at Jubilee Primary School.
