A guide to the Aylesford primary phase.
A welcome from the
Director of Primary Education
Dear Parents and Carers,
Aylesford School is a vibrant school where students are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. They are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. The school provides a wonderful learning environment and expert staff who are highly committed to our students.
Aylesford is privileged to be in the unique position of being an all through 4-19 school. Close partnerships between the Primary and Secondary phases offer many opportunities including specialist teaching across the school. Modern Foreign Languages, PE and Music are taught jointly by Primary and Secondary phase staff providing shared expertise and a wider range of resources.
Here at Aylesford, we believe that students should be curious about their learning. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that they can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that students receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.
I am extremely proud to be part of such a friendly school with a caring and nurturing family ethos where both staff and students are encouraged to “respect, aspire and wonder.” I look forward to an exciting year ahead, building on the school’s existing strengths.
Should you have any queries or wish to visit the school, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
