Information about the school

Information about the school

At Palm Bay, we have very high expectations and standards of teaching, learning and behaviour as well as a strong commitment to training and developing our staff. We welcome innovation; our leadership team support all staff to discover, develop and promote their own passions and interests within the school. Career progression at Palm Bay is very good: in the past three years, six teachers have been supported to gain their NPQSL qualifications and four middle leaders have moved on to Head of School or Deputy Head roles at other schools. Our innovative work on teaching and learning, including our commitment to action research, was recognised and praised by Ofsted (2018).

We offer a broad and rounded curriculum, with plenty of opportunities for outdoor learning in our beautiful grounds and nearby beach. As an ‘Eco School’ we seek to promote care and responsibility for the environment and we have an active Eco Council. Our commitment to sports and the creative subjects is strong and we have a well-equipped music room, a specialist music teacher and two sports coaches. Reading and oracy lie at the heart of our curriculum; we are committed to developing a love of reading in all children through ‘Reading for Pleasure’ and our pupils enjoy a spacious and well-stocked library.

Over the past three years, we have been developing our curriculum using a creative, topic-based approach. The creative arts continue to remain a priority: we have five artists-in-residence who are based in our on-site studio space, close links with the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery and have recently gained the Gold Artsmark. Committed to raising the aspirations and life-chances of the children we serve, we are launching an exciting global citizenship programme in September, which will incorporate politics, careers-related learning and personal development, helping our pupils to become caring, active members of their community.

Committed to collaborative professional learning, we work closely with two local schools: St Peters in Thanet Juniors and Ramsgate Holy Trinity Primary School. This hub enables teachers and leaders to work together on school development and enrichment opportunities. In addition to this we are a Maths Hub school.

Testimonial from a current teacher:

“Palm Bay Primary School offers a welcoming and friendly community culture. Our school values of teamwork, perseverance, enthusiasm, achievement and creativity are not only shown by the children, but by every member of staff too.

I completed my NQT year in July 2019 and have since taken on the role of staff governor and outdoor learning lead after training as a Forest School Leader. As an NQT I had weekly meetings with my mentor, supportive lesson observation feedback and I was always welcome to observe teaching practices in other classrooms. This support has continued into my second year of teaching at Palm Bay, and it is part of the ethos of our school. All staff are continually supported with their professional development through weekly CPD meetings, coaching and collaboration with other members of the team. The senior team involve the staff in key decisions and our ideas and suggestions are valued.

Pupil and staff wellbeing is also a key focus for Palm Bay. We recognise the importance of promoting positive wellbeing and mental health and we have a dedicated wellbeing team”.
