Hamstreet Primary School

Welcome to Hamstreet Primary School

Our aim at the school is to ensure that your child has a happy start to their schooling. The staff at the school have a friendly and caring approach and we hope this will help both you and your child settle in.

Naturally, we ask for your support and interest throughout your child's school life as, by working together, the children are more likely to succeed in fulfilling their potential.

We are committed to the ideal of a partnership in education between home and school and, to this end, prospective parents are invited to visit the school and meet the staff and children.

You must feel free, at all times to approach the staff, or myself to discuss any concerns you may have - we will be happy to discuss them with you.

We actively encourage our children to pursue their interest through the extensive range of clubs on offer. These currently include choir, recorders, orchestra, netball, football, kung fu, maypole dancing, art, environment, cricket, athletics, cross-stitch art and foreign languages. Activities take place during the lunch hour or after school.

In addition, lessons are available during school time in violin, piano, keyboard, clarinet, guitar and brass instruments. These are taught by visiting freelance specialists or Kent Music School Staff.

Some other activities eg dance, French club, Brazilian football, take place after school and are taught by out-of-school organisations so a small fee is charged.
