Our school can be found in the wonderful rural village of East Peckham near Tonbridge.
We have a forward thinking staff who are always determined to make the learning experiences the most exciting and interesting for our children. Please take a look at our gallery to see all the things that we get up to!
The teachers start each topic with an engaging 'hook' which our children absolutely love. Whether we have CCTV of Goldilocks running through the school, discovering a rocket has crash landed in the school or searching for Murphy (Mrs Wickens' dog) in the village only to find he had slipped into Alice's Wonderland!
Murphy is in fact a certified reading dog and there are times when he visits the school to read with different children. This helps to build their confidence in reading and encourages children to practice their reading skills.
Are you interested in learning a musical instrument? Well year 4 have been learning the guitar as a class! We have a professional music teacher come to school and teach the whole class and even perform to parents too.
Did you know that we have a nationally recognised Anti-Bullying Award? This is in recognition of all the work that we do to help children with their friendships and to address unkind behaviour. Year 6 children are trained peer mediators which means that they can help support children fix broken friendships. They are trained by Maidstone Mediation Service. Year 6 children are also reading buddies and Reception children buddies. They help our newest children settle into life in school. Mrs Hannan (Pastoral Support) is also in school to support the wellbeing of families and children. She is here to listen and help in any way she can. We are so lucky to have someone in this role who is available 3 days a week.
We are lucky to have our very own heated swimming pool. Yes...that's right - it is heated and feels like a bath! Schools are only required to have swimming lessons for one year group during their time in school, however every class in our school has lessons whilst the pool is open!
Did you also know that we have a kitchen in school? This kitchen isn't for the staff but for the children. Children are able to learn about kitchen safety as well as make some healthy and tasty treats!
Are you interested in wrap around care? PureSports is an external company that runs a breakfast club and after school club until 6pm. We know how important this option is for our working families. The children do sports activities, including dancing. If you have any questions regarding this club, including cost, please speak to the school office.
In our opinion our school is the place to be! If you would like to visit to find out more about us, please make an appointment or come along to one of our open events. If you are unable to make any of these times, please contact the school office.
