Folkestone Primary is a forward-thinking school, committed to enabling children to acquire fundamental literacy and maths skills, while developing individual strengths and talents. We are determined that every child in our school is happy and successful, through providing high standards of academic learning opportunities and pastoral care.
As an inclusive, caring school where every child matters, we recognise that all children have talents and abilities to enjoy, and a part of our role is to help them discover and develop these. We encourage a strong community spirit, where we show consideration for each other, understand differences, and uphold kind, well-mannered behaviour.
The learning community of Folkestone Primary has a vision to ensure our school has an atmosphere of purpose and to be alive with learning. It is a place where the confidence and self-esteem of our children is key, where they are excited by learning and develop an understanding of themselves as learners. We are a caring community with a committed team who role model high expectations of learning and behaviour: children come to our school to be happy and successful.
