Thank you to everyone who contributed to the wonderful assembly for me at the end of term. I now have a suitcase full of memories to take with me on my journey! I am very grateful for all the good luck messages and gifts I have received from parents and pupils. I will miss you all. C Owen
Welcome to Bidborough Church of England Primary School’s website.
This site has two key aims: to give visitors an insight into our distinctive school, and secondly to keep parents up to date with factual information such as term dates, curriculum updates and newsletters.
Bidborough Primary is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School situated in the beautiful village of Bidborough on the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells. We have strong links with our parent Church of St Lawrence and our overarching motto is Faith in our Future.
At Bidborough we are rightly proud of our high academic achievements; however that is only one part of the education we provide for our children. We believe in educating children for all that life can bring, which means for us, taking a holistic approach to your child’s education. In 2012 we were rated Outstanding by the Diocese of Rochester and in 2013 we were rated Good with Outstanding features by Ofsted.
Our curriculum is topic based, exciting and challenging with the development of children’s thinking skills as a core thread. Christian values are at the heart of all we do and our Faith in the Future motto translates into 6 key areas we hope our children will develop by the time they leave us at the end of Year 6.
A Bidborough child will be:
Confident & Happy
Prepared for Life
A Confident Communicator
An Enthusiastic Learner
and a Responsible Citizen
Our pupils fully participate in all school life has to offer them. Music and Sport feature highly in our curriculum with pupils participating in Town based music and sporting events.
Please enjoy looking at our website, and if you require and further details please contact the school office.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children to Bidborough Primary School.
Mrs Clare Owen
We are pleased to announce our new curriculum for 2014- Roots, Shoots and Leaves. As you will be aware the National Curriculum has been remodelled and slimmed down by the Government so we have taken the opportunity to re examine our general curriculum provision. Attached is a summary document that explains the approach we are taking. We are not announcing the topic titles as yet as we would like to retain an element of surprise, however I can say that Independent Study Time remains along with an increased focus on outdoor education and Eco matters.
Our new after school club is up and running. Bidbor' Out! is an independently run club set up by Mark and Natasha Huntley, who have 3 children in our school. For more details please go to the website www.bidborout.co.uk or find them on Facebook.
