Information about the school

Paddock Wood Primary Academy is a comparatively large school (22 classes/600+ pupils), set in the town of Paddock Wood in the Kent countryside. It is a thriving and engaging three-form entry school in the heart of West Kent. Our ethos encapsulates high standards and expectations, excellent learning and teaching, and the positive wellbeing of our pupils and colleagues. We have a strong and committed teaching team which is widely respected and supported by our academy community. Our teachers vary in experience from Newly Qualified to 30+ years, and each brings something valuable to share, and a passion to learn. Our staff team totals 67 (32 teachers, 18 teaching assistants and 17 others) and we have a lot to offer new colleagues, in terms of sharing experience and opportunities, and professional development and training.

We directly employ our own SEN department, comprising Numbers Count and Reading Recovery teachers, specialist Teaching Assistants, and our highly-skilled Inclusion Manager. Our wide curriculum is supported by specialist teachers of music, French, PE, computing and outdoor education. Some features that help us stand out from other schools are that all of our pupils learn French, learn other subjects in French and leave us conversant in the language, pupils leave us with a strong understanding and appreciation of music and sporting skills and that we embed independence, stamina and considered risk into children’s learning, for example through EYFS and KS1 team games and initiative exercises, Year 3 outdoor/forest skills, Y4 mountain biking, Year 5 caving and kayaking, and Year 6 skiing/snow-boarding. We have our own school minibuses and we very frequently take children out into the local area and into central London, as well as taking Year 5 pupils to the Brecon Beacons and Year 6 pupils to Paris. We have a strong regard for extra-curricular learning and a healthy catalogue of sporting and other successes and awards.

Our school is very well regarded, and as well as serving our local community we have a number of pupils (and staff!) who travel some distance to be with us every day. Our academy benefits from significant parent and community support, but we are not complacent - we are committed, hard-working and welcoming. Our children are delightful; calm, focused and very eager to learn.
