Information about the school

‘Creating Excellence Together’ is what we strive to do at Dame Janet Primary Academy. Serving the children of Ramsgate on two sites, with extensive grounds used for sports and forest school Dame Janet is really worth finding out more about.

Under the new, tougher national curriculum and assessments over the last two years the school has achieved above the national average in attainment and the children have made progress that was significantly above the national average. Throughout the school, children enjoy a challenging but fun curriculum that prepares them well. In the early years of nursery and reception, children enjoy a good start to their education, as recognised by Ofsted. From their earliest days to their last in Year Six, the children make good progress and experience imaginative topics that they have helped to shape. Children have travelled through time, been to outer space, explored the wonders of the ancient world and fought off monsters in the guise of superheroes; all the while working with their hands, using technology and experiencing learning in different environments.

Dame Janet is a school for everyone. Supportive and skilled staff nurture and develop children to find what they are excellent at whether it’s in the classroom, on the sports field, as part of the choir or as an actor working with the Royal Shakespeare Company in its Associate Schools Programme.

The leadership team are passionately committed to giving pupils a wide range of real-life and enriching experiences and through these the children have gone off to the secondary school of their choice prepared and ready to create more excellence.
