About Aylesford Primary

A welcome from the

Director of Primary Education

Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the new Director of Primary Education here at Aylesford School. I am very keen to get to know parents as well as all the students and staff.

From my experience of teaching and leading in schools over the last 14 years, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. 

I am proud to be part of such a friendly school with a caring and nurturing family ethos where both staff and students are encouraged “respect, aspire and wonder”.

Aylesford School provides a wonderful learning environment and expert staff who are highly committed to our students. My aim is to build on existing successes and continue to develop the school during its exciting journey.  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. This year children will receive specialist teaching across some subjects. Modern foreign languages, PE and music will be taught jointly by Primary and Secondary phase staff providing shared expertise and a wider range of resources.

I am looking to hold a number of events over the new term which will provide an opportunity to meet you and discuss the building of a successful partnership. Further details of these events will follow.

I look forward to meeting with you then, however, should you wish to contact me please do so via the school office.

Yours faithfully

Angelique Edkins

Director of Primary Education
