    Foundation Stage New Entrants 2020


    We would like to extend our warmest welcome to the children and families who will be joining Paddock Wood Primary Academy in September 2020. 
    In these unusual times transition into school will be different. However, using the latest government guidelines we will ensure your child will feel happy and safe when they begin their school journey with us. 
    This page will be kept up to date throughout the summer, so please check regularly for the latest information.
    We look forward to meeting you soon.
