Information about the school

Kemsley Primary Academy was opened in September 2004 and is a single form entry primary school with a very popular nursery, situated in Sittingbourne, Kent. Our main school can serve up to 210 children with 30 pupils in each class. Our nursery can cater for 52 children for five half-day sessions of two and a half hours – 26 children in the morning and 26 children in the afternoon; many children stay all day as part of our flexible care offer and for those entitled to 30 hours provision. Many of our nursery children join our reception class.

We are proud to be part of the family of schools that are the REAch2 academy. Our school ethos very much mirrors the essence of the REAch2 touchstones and is centred round the following core values: Exploration, Resilience, Positivity and Aspiration. The following additional eight values have also been introduced and are now also embraced by our school: Respect, Integrity, Honesty, Kindness, Appreciation, Teamwork, Empathy, Love.

We are very fortunate to have such vast grounds. Outside, the grounds are laid out into separate play areas; Nursery, Year R, Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2) together and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6) together. Usually we would encourage free flow around the areas at lunch times to allow the children to play together regardless of year group, however due to COVID19 restrictions we are currently having staggered playtimes in bubbles. Our large field is ideal for games. We also have a woodland conservation area which we use all year round. We have an open door policy and value the support of parents. We are pleased to welcome parent helpers into school.
