East Peckham Primary School

Challenging our thinking, building our learning, creating our future

Coming to East Peckham Primary School

 

 

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. Our curriculum policy is based around making learning as real life as possible and preparing our children for the real world. 

 

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 having mysterious paintings and items appear in the school overnight. These 'hooks' get the children enaged from the first lesson. 

 

Have you heard of Forest School? It is an opportunity to learn outside and have new experiences. The children make food on a camp fire as well as investigate the nature around them. Years R, 1 and 2 have weekly sessions at Forest School. Each class in Key Stage 2 get a chance to go to Forest School too on a termly timetable.  

 

Are you interested in learning a musical instrument? At the moment, Rocksteady Music School come and teach children throughout the school how to be  in a rock band!

 

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.  

 

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 when 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 Breakfast Club? Our breakfast club is actually called Breakfast Cafe! Emma's Kitchen, who provides our school dinners, provides a breakfast. The menu is available here. https://www.east-peckham.kent.sch.uk/wrap-around-care/

 

We also have our national award winning Podcast run by year 6 children. The whole school contributes to the podcast and the year 6 children cut and edit the material to create an incredible podcast. Check the 'School Radio' link to hear some of them - listen out for some famous names including Michael Ball, Rick Astley, Joe Widdowson and more.

 

In our opinion our school is the place to be! We have outstanding staff, outstanding facilities and outstanding children. If you would like to visit to find out more about us, please make an appointment with the school office. We can't wait to meet you!
