Facilities

Our school is set in beautiful, extensive grounds tucked away in a quiet, pleasant residential area of Paddock Wood.

We have superb teaching facilities which include interactive white boards in all classrooms, a newly renovated library with a large interactive wall mounted screen, two large halls and a purpose built block and playground for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) children.

A large kitchen adjacent to one of the school halls, means that we are able to offer school meals freshly cooked on the premises.

There are separate playgrounds for EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children, each having its own modern wooden play equipment.

In addition, there is a large sports field with a running track for PE activities such as football, cricket, rounders and athletics.

We have recently added a thriving vegetable garden which is tended by the children. Other outdoor facilities include wildlife and secure pond areas which the children use in their studies.

The school also boasts a security fencing system with electronically operated gates which lock between the core time of 9.00am until 2.45pm to ensure that the children are safe and secure in their learning environment.

Blended Learning Approach

From September 2021, all children in Key Stage 2 will have a 1:1 Chromebook device to use within school. In Key Stage 1, children will have access to iPads with 1:2 ratio, again allowing them to have authentic IT use across the curriculum. The investment in IT allows Paddock Wood to have a Blended Learning Approach, utilising the best practice gained during remote learning, to enhance our in-school provision. The platform we use is Google Classroom and further information can be found on our Home/Remote Learning page.
