Finberry Primary School
Finberry Primary School opened in September 2015 in temporary accommodation in Jemmett Road, Ashford and has since moved into a state of the art building, in the newly developed Finberry Village near Kingswood, Ashford.
Built to serve the needs of a growing community, the school has recently been expanded in a second phase of construction to provide a building that can support a two form entry school of 420 pupils.
The school also hosts a small specialist resource base provision for pupils who have greater difficulty learning as a result of Behavioural, Emotional and Social Needs. The base includes provision for up to 14 pupils. A Nursery is also available to local children, run by the school.
The school was inspected by Ofsted in September 2018 and was judged to be "Good" in all areas; with a positive ethos alongside strong and secure relationships between all staff and pupils being commented on in the report. The staff are working tirelessly to achieve "Outstanding" in their next inspection.
Finberry Primary School is part of The Stour Academy Trust, a highly successful primary only multi-academy trust. Working in a collaborative model, Finberry is part of the Ashford Hub of the Trust, along with Chilmington Green Primary. All Academies in the Trust share the same core values and ethos; to raise standards and address under performance whilst making sure that the children are at the heart of every decision. Through the effective use of Hubs, the Trust’s aim and ambition is to create a network of outstanding schools that thrive through collaboration and interaction.
