Bysing Wood Primary School
Bysing Wood is a friendly Primary School located on the western outskirts of Faversham.
The school is growing in popularity, building on a successful Ofsted and the fantastic range of facilities offered alongside a great atmosphere. Currently the school has 160 children on roll, organised into a single form of entry from Reception to Year 6. A building project to become 2 form entry over the next few years has recently been completed. September 2018 saw the start of a Forest School provision on site and we opened a pre-school in January 2020, catering for 2,3 & 4 year olds.
In March 2020, we were a founder member of EKC Schools Trust, which provides access to the EKC Group colleges' resources to further enrich our curriculum.
At Bysing Wood Primary School we value each child as an individual and encourage them to achieve their personal best in a happy, secure, stimulating environment. The displays in school are a major strength and help evidence the rich, relevant, termly topic-based curriculum (with associated visitors and trips) on offer. Our staff are committed to developing the whole child, encouraging learning through knowledge, skills and practical activities. We also support them to become tolerant, respectful and caring individuals who enjoy their work and play and are proud of their achievements.
The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is high, pointing to the social and economic challenges facing a proportion of our families, although the profile is changing over time as the housing developments in Faversham come on stream.
