Ulcombe Church of England Primary School continues to be a good school.

 

The inspection recognised the many strengths of the school, and its inclusive ethos. 

 

‘Ulcombe is a small, welcoming, inclusive school with a Christian ethos.’

 

‘Pupils are made very welcome when they join the school. New pupils settle quickly and easily slot into the school’s routines.’

 

‘ Pupils show respect for each other and adults in the school, including visitors. There is very little low-level disruption during lessons, which helps pupils to concentrate on learning. ‘

 

‘Teachers’ high expectations mean that pupils behave well, work hard and make good progress from their starting points. ‘

 

As part of the ASPIRE Federation, we aim to be an outstanding school at the heart of our culturally diverse communities. We strive for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum.

We are passionate about our school and about bringing out the best in the pupils as well as the staff.

We have a dedicated team of teachers and support staff who provide the children with as many opportunities as possible to learn in a fun and exciting way. Our pupils are equipped with the skills they need to make good progress through their primary education so they can confidently make the transition to secondary school.

Throughout the whole school, we are very proud of our uniqueness and the support we are able to offer the Gypsy Roma Traveller community.
