Welcome to
Paddock Wood Primary Academy

enabling every child to thrive academically, socially and emotionally

We are a large three form entry Primary School situated in Paddock Wood. We pride ourselves on being at the heart of the community. As the Interim Principal of Paddock Wood Primary Academy, I am honoured to serve a community with so much tradition, culture, ambition and love for their children.

We believe that there are no limits to what we can achieve when we work together.  Our values of ‘aspire, respect and persevere’ permeate through everything we say and do. Our academy is dedicated to creating a safe and inclusive learning environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We believe in nurturing the whole child and encouraging our children to explore their interests and passions and achieving excellence.

Our Mission

Our highly ambitious community builds thinking learners who act with agency and create lasting memories.

Our ethos encapsulates high standards and expectations, excellent learning and teaching, and the positive wellbeing of pupils and staff.

We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, enriched through our after school clubs and co-curricular activities which are made accessible to all. As an IB World School, our curriculum provision is enhanced further through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP).

PWPA’s wide curriculum offer is supported by specialist teachers of Music, French, PE and outdoor education. We have a strong regard for extra-curricular learning and a very healthy catalogue of sporting and other successes and awards.

Our academy benefits from significant parent and community support.
