Birchington Church of England Primary School


Welcome to our school website! I hope you enjoy your electronic trip around - although this is only a tiny glimpse of everyday life at Birchington CE Primary School!

I am sure when you visit us you will see for yourself that we provide a positive, caring and stable environment where your child can develop a sense of responsibility and independence. Apart from the exiting, challenging and stimulating curriculum we offer a modern well maintained site, friendly and approachable staff and a wide range of extra curricular activities.

We work in close partnership with our parents and wish to be a school community that cares for each other and value the contribution of all.

I look forward to meeting you soon

Ms K Barham


To create a happy and secure learning environment, in which all pupils can achieve their full potential to the best of their ability and where all members of the school Community live with respect for each other, within a Christian framework. 


Each aim is in itself a priority and this is therefore not to be considered as a graded list. 

1                    To ensure all pupils are provided with an effective and relevant education to equip them for life.

2                    To promote, through our curriculum, a holistic approach to life skills and learning.

3                    To celebrate the achievements of all pupils in an atmosphere of enjoyment and trust.

4                    To develop in children a positive sense of moral responsibility and self-discipline.

5                    To foster a sense of belonging to the school and the community.

6                    To develop in our pupils a spiritual awareness and an awe of the Universe.

7                    To help children to learn to live together, with mutual respect and support, irrespective of colour, creed or gender.

8                    To ensure equal access for all, to all aspects of school life.

9                    To ensure that the Governors, Parents and Staff build a real partnership of trust for the benefit of the children.

10                To develop in children a lifelong love of learning. 

The specific objectives, which further these aims, will be found in subject policies and are integral to the schemes of work and lesson plans.


Recognising its historic foundation, the School will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level. 

The School aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.


Areas are taught in line with National Curriculum requirements. Strategies to encourage the children to understand their world and to develop a positive attitude towards learning permeate the curriculum. The staff adopts the principle that children positively engaged on interesting programmes of study aimed at stretching their ability level derive enjoyment from learning.


Our curriculum guidelines and policies are evaluated and revised regularly. The policy statements on specific subject areas, agreed by the Governing Body, are available for inspection at the School Office.  Subjects are divided into core and foundation subjects.


Extra Curricular Activities
There are a wide variety of clubs and activities, held both at lunchtime and after school.  The School staff take clubs on a voluntary basis.  However, parents will be asked to pay a subscription to outside teachers.  We currently offer the following clubs:
