Loose Primary School
Loose Primary School is part of a friendly community, situated on the outskirts of Maidstone. Together with Coxheath Primary School and St Katherine's Primary School and Nursery, it is a member of the Coppice Primary Partnership which is providing many exciting career opportunities for staff to explore.
We have very high expectations for pupil outcomes and support staff with many professional development opportunities to help secure the very best provision for every child. We are committed to working collaboratively with other schools and a Leadership Pathways programme exists for all members of staff with career development opportunities to explore.
The school was judged by Ofsted as outstanding in November 2016 and is popular and oversubscribed. We have highly motivated and well-behaved children and supportive parents.
Teachers plan and monitor work together in and across year group teams offering mutual support and exchange of ideas. An effective induction process exists for new staff offering a mentor for the first year.
We value sporting activities highly and have extensive grounds and our own indoor swimming pool. We compete successfully with other local schools in a wide range of sports and in local and county tournaments. The children swim all year round, taught by qualified swimming coaches, and all leave the school able to swim well.
