Paddock Wood Primary School

Paddock Wood Primary Academy

An academy of excellence and enjoyment at the heart of its community


    Our school is set in beautiful, extensive grounds tucked away in a quiet, pleasant residential area of Paddock Wood.

    We have superb teaching facilities which include interactive white boards in all classrooms, a newly renovated library with a large interactive wall mounted screen, two large halls and a purpose built block and playground for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) children.

    A large kitchen adjacent to one of the school halls, means that we are able to offer our own catering service with school meals freshly cooked on the premises.

    There are separate playgrounds for EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children, each having its own modern wooden play equipment.

    In addition, there is a large sports field with a running track for PE activities such as football, cricket, rounders and athletics.

    We have recently added a thriving vegetable garden which is tended by the children. Other outdoor facilities include wildlife and secure pond areas which the children use in their studies.

    The school also boasts a security fencing system with electronically operated gates which lock between the core time of 9.00am until 2.45pm to ensure that the children are safe and secure in their learning environment.

    ICT Facilities

    Each class has access to a bank of laptops to deliver the computing curriculum developed to equip children with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. They will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.

    To complement our knowledge-based learning and teaching on our laptops with ‘real life’ skills development and application, we use personal tablets across Key Stage 2.
