Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to our website - we hope you find it useful and informative.

Petham Primary School is a small, rural school close to the city of Canterbury. It is within the village of Petham and has strong links to the nearby church and pre-school.

We currently have 108 children on roll, divided into 4 classes. We are proud to be part of the The Village Academy, which is a group of seven schools under the leadership and guidance of the Principal, Mr Ian Fidge.  I am Headteacher at Petham, in charge of the day to day running of the school.  

We are a busy, friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.

The aims of our school

  • For children to enjoy school and learning
  • To develop a sense of moral responsibility and self-discipline.
  • To work closely with children and parents in the pursuit of the highest standards.
  • To develop children's own strategies for learning and improving.
  • To deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects the needs of our children.
  • To further develop our close links with the local community.

If you would like to find out more about us, visits from prospective parents are welcomed. Please contact our school office to make an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mrs Babiche Deysel
