About Our School

Aylesham Primary School Services the village of Aylesham and the surrounding villages.  It is a ‘good’ school. The building and grounds provide good facilities, are well equipped and set in attractive and spacious surroundings.

The school is a two-form entry school with a maximum of 60 pupils in each year group.  However, for historical reasons the school currently has only one form in each year group from Reception to Year 6.  Because of this there is a very spacious area enjoyed by our younger children, a discreet Art Room, Music Room, Library and ICT Suite.  Two school halls provide ample accommodation for physical education, games, movement and drama and as a meeting place for whole-school assemblies.

The school grounds are generous and the children enjoy a large area for games with a junior size football pitch ready for use.

We have a fully inclusive approach and are aware that each child has an individual range of abilities and varying rates of progress in all areas of work and in relationships.  Children with additional educational needs will be catered for by high quality teaching and ability grouping within each class.  Work in class is ability matched and pupils receive extra support or interventions when appropriate according to need.

We have a dedicated SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) who is responsible for the co-ordination and provision of work for children who have special needs throughout the Federation.
