Welcome to Ambergate Primary School


The School Statement

Ambergate is a small village school where a genuine interest and concern for the individual exist. The school aims to offer a high standard of primary education and a wide range of learning opportunities. Learning to work and play together, sharing and caring for others are important factors in the life of our school. We consider that it is important to build links with the wider community and value the support and involvement of parents in school.


In June1898, a new school opened in the small village of Ambergate.

100 years on, the school is still going strong. During the school's life there have been many changes to the building. In 1907 a partition was built between the classroom four and the hall. The car park at the front of the school building was once a garden which the school children looked after. In 1940, during the 2nd World War, air raid shelters where built in the playground. They were knocked down in 1985. Then in 1987 the terrapin was acquired to provide an extra classroom for the reception class. It was knocked down in 1998 to be replaced by a new classroom.

The school has raised ?526.96 for the NSPCC and ?40.00 for Book Aid.


Ambergate School operates a team points system. Children earn points for their team by working well the teams are called Pine, Oak, Beech and Ash.


A group of adults, mostly parents, are very active helping the school and raising money.

The Aims of the School

Our aim is to provide every child with full access to a broad and balanced curriculum so that each individual can achieve their potential in an atmosphere of collaboration and mutual support and respect.

This means helping children to:

  • develop a positive attitude to school and learning in general
  • experience encouragement and success to enhance self respect
  • develop confidence, interest, initiative and responsibility
  • learn to work together with adults and peers to gain the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed in a rapidly changing world
  • communicate effectively in a variety of forms
  • participate in a wide range of physical, sporting and creative activities which enrich their appreciation of life
  • develop tolerance, respect for the views of others and raise awareness of religious and moral values
  • acquire an environmental awareness, fostering a caring attitude to the world around us

We aim to provide a high quality environment in which:

  • there is a high regard for children's safety
  • children have a clear understanding of what is expected of them in terms of work and behaviour
  • they are treated as individuals with unique learning needs whose ideas, opinions and work are valued
  • the achievement of children's highest possible standards is recognised and celebrated and is reflected in the quality of displays around school
  • there is an atmosphere of mutual co-operation, involvement and understanding between the school, parents and the community and everyone's contribution is valued
  • a belief in equal opportunity underpins all our work
