Laddingford CEP School
Laddingford is a small rural Primary School in easy reach of Barming, Maidstone, Marden, Paddock Wood and Tonbridge.
Welcoming everyone, building foundations, leaving no-one behind
Laddingford St Mary’s is a happy and vibrant school where children and staff are excited about learning. Our aim is for children to leave Laddingford not only with knowledge but also with the skills and disposition needed to be a successful lifelong learner; throughout all lessons we focus on skills such as inquisitiveness, independence and a positive mind-set. As a result, our children are excited about their learning, hardworking, focused and confident.
We strive unashamedly for academic excellence for all children in our care, whilst also nurturing and celebrating the wide range of other talents that make them special and unique. We have a fantastic staff team, who are dedicated to their roles and passionate not only about our children’s education but also their holistic development. Our community's happiness and well-being are our number one priority. Our calm and nurturing atmosphere is underpinned by our core Christian values, as a Church of England Primary School we strive to provide children with a sound moral compass which will support them throughout their education and beyond.
At maximum capacity, our school can educate just 91 children. This means that we truly are one family, we go on whole school trips together and at playtime and lunchtime children socialise happily together across year groups. We currently have 80 children on roll and the class structure is flexible depending on the size of each year group.
Laddingford St Mary’s is a very special place, our school has a warmth and positive buzz that is best experienced firsthand. If you are interested in what we have to offer and think this could be the right school for you, we look forward to hearing from you.
As a school, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and all staff are subject to DBS checks.
We like to think of ourselves as a little school with a lot going on! This video gives a taster of a day at Laddingford Primary.
