We are delighted to introduce Paddock Wood Primary Academy to you through our school website, which we hope you will find useful and informative.

We are sure that, as a parent or carer, your leading expectation of our school will be one of a learning environment where your child will be engaged and challenged, not only to achieve their potential, but also to enjoy and develop a thirst for learning. We strive to ensure that our school is a place where children can feel safe, will experience a sense of pride in their achievements, and where children can develop and refine their social, communication and interpersonal skills.

As the Principal and Vice Principal of Paddock Wood Primary Academy we are proud of our whole staff team and our wider school community, every member of which is collectively and individually committed to providing the highest quality learning experiences for every child, utilising modern facilities and resources.

We will do our utmost to ensure that your child is happy at our school.

We are continually striving for improvement. The curriculum which we deliver is both relevant and challenging and is designed to develop the full potential of all our children. We provide stimulating well-resourced learning environments and require the highest standards of achievement, attitude and behaviour.

The purpose of this website is not only to inform you about aspects of school life, our school organisation and the opportunities we offer learners, but also to invite you to become actively involved in our school community and our commitment to your child’s education. We recognise that children’s educational opportunities are enhanced by the support of families and we proactively engage with parents and carers every day to develop and improve our professional partnerships.

Best wishes
