A guide to the Aylesford primary phase.
A welcome from the Director of Primary Education.
Welcome to Aylesford Primary School, a friendly school that is proud of its caring and nurturing family ethos. We are a dedicated team of professionals who strive to develop high standards of behaviour and academic achievement, with every pupil well known to all staff.
We know that children’s emotions are key; when they feel safe, secure and supported learning is at its most successful. Aylesford Primary is a place where pupils will be valued, understood and consulted. Promoting a positive attitude to school and a lifelong love of learning is at the heart of our vision.
A flexible, creative curriculum reflects our passion for active learning and promotes real life contexts at every opportunity. The location and links with our partner school Ferncumbe C of E Primary at Hatton, enables us to enrich the children’s experiences outside the classroom. The children will attend Forest Schools, participate in a range of subject specific focus weeks, go to the theatre and visit an art gallery during their time at Aylesford Primary.
As part of the Aylesford Academy, Aylesford Primary School is confident of achieving excellent academic results. High expectations and careful monitoring of pupil progress enables us to offer extra support or challenge to all.
We see ourselves as partners with parents in your children's development. We have an open door policy and welcome parent volunteers to enrich many aspects of school life. As you and your child join us the carefully planned induction programme will cement the foundation of a long and fruitful partnership.
Aylesford Academy is on a unique journey to becoming the first all-through school for 4 to 18 year olds in Warwickshire. This means that Reception pupils will have the opportunity to benefit from continuous excellence from their first day of school through to the end of Sixth Form. We look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you.
Director of Primary Education, Aylesford Academy.
