At Fordcombe School we give our pupils the best possible start in life.
We provide them with a high standard of education within a challenging,
stimulating and secure Christian environment, promoting their self worth and
encouraging a sense of responsibility.

The following are the school aims. They are not placed in any order of priority but are thought to be of equal importance. It is through the achievement of these aims that we can ensure the delivery of the mission.

1. To provide opportunities for each child to reach his/her potential.

2. To provide a secure environment in which the child feels happy and can learn effectively.

3. To help the child to an appreciation of his or her own worth and that of others.

4. To help the child develop, through self-control and discipline, a sense of community responsibility.

5. To promote positive attitudes towards cultural diversity.

6. To enable the child to read a variety of material, to his or her ability and interest, with understanding and pleasure

7. To encourage the child to express him or herself clearly, freely and fluently in both spoken and written language.

8. To develop knowledge and understanding of basic mathematical operations and concepts at a speed suited to the child's ability, and to be able to apply them in everyday life.

9. To provide opportunity for scientific discovery through investigation and observation.

10. To encourage children to enjoy a range of physical activities and to acquire appropriate skills.

11. To help the child develop an appreciation of beauty and the ability to communicate through some art form, such as art, music, drama and movement.

12. Through topic work involving history, geography, science, music and religious education, to help children to understand the world in which they live, the way in which it develops and the inter-dependence of individuals, groups and nations.

13. To help develop pupils’ personal, spiritual and moral values within the Christian Faith, whilst fostering tolerance in preparing them for a multi-cultural society

The school is divided into 4 classes:

  • Ash: Reception-children aged 4+ to 5 years.
  • Beech:Years 1 and 2-children aged 5/6 and 6/7 years.
  • Elm:Years 3 and 4-children aged 7/8 and 8/9 years.
  • Oak:Years 5 and 6-children aged 9/10 and 10/11 years.
  • Each class takes a varied approach in providing for the mixed ages. Much of the work is individually structured, within the constraints of the Literacy hour and the daily Numeracy lesson, so that children can progress at their own rate. New topics within these subjects are often introduced on a year-group basis, so children can also have the experience of working with their peers. Children can work in different groups from their age range if they are particularly able or need extra help. R.E. and Foundation subjects are taken with the whole class and learning objectives are differentiated according to ability.


    The school runs several clubs throughout the year. Clubs are mainly for KS2 children. The clubs include:-
    Music, Drama Club, Newspaper Club, Computer Club, Gardening Club, Choir, Summer sports, Cross country running, Athletics, Football, Netball, Cricket, Recorders, Tag Rugby, Art.
