From little acorns, mighty oaks grow
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Palace Wood Primary School. We are a two form entry primary school with two buildings and amazing grounds. By having two buildings, we are able to provide children with the 'best of both worlds' as we are able to be both separate and inclusive at the same time. We make sure that all of our children have the chance to mix through a range of activities, but also have the opportunity to develop independence and an identity all of their own.
The school has seen some incredible successes over the past few years in both academic and non-academic areas. We were recently named in the top 50 primary schools in Kent as a result of our achievements at KS2. In addition to this, we have been awarded the Gold School Sports Award - one of very few schools to achieve this award. Sports are a real strength of the school and we are currently the reigning Kent champions for Netball.
At Palace Wood, we are incredibly proud to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which focuses on the needs and experiences of the children, and develops enquiring minds. We provide the children with a wealth of opportunities to enhance their learning with the aim that we can help to mould rounded children. We have a holistic approach to learning, which starts in foundation, where we aim to inspire a love of learning. We want our children to be independent, self-motivated learners who are inquisitive, who persevere, who are happy, postive and determined, and most of all, proud of themselves. We want our children to be excellent role models for each other by being responsible, polite, honest and show empathy for each other.
