Information about the school

We are a large infant school of 360 children nestled in the Northfleet area of Gravesham.

Our four form entry school is made up of three amazing teaching teams who work very closely together, thinking creatively to provide an exciting and enriched curriculum for our gorgeous children. They couldn't do it without the support of our brilliant office, cleaning and supervising teams who all work relentlessly to provide the very best for our families.

So what makes us different to any other school? Good question....

Our parents say we have a natural, caring feel about us that makes them feel their children are safe and happy.

Our children say that we are fun and let them do exciting things. They love sharing their ideas to challenge us in to making our school an even better place for them to learn in.

Visiting professionals tell us they love coming to our school as they are always welcomed and looked after, making them instantly feel a part of our team and valued in their role.

Our team say they are worked hard but know that everything they do is for our children. They get one chance to experience each year of their lives with us and our team make every moment count.

If this sounds like the kind of school you would like to be a part of and to grow and develop in further, then please come and visit us, meet our children, meet our team and feel what every other visitor does when they enter our school.

We offer wrap around care and have recently been awarded our Leading Parent Partnership Award for our dedication to working relentlessly with parents to ensure the best care for our children.

We are part of the Northfleet Trust Schools, ( which is not an academy), but which means we work very closely with 7 other local schools sharing expertise, training opportunities, resources and facilities.
