About Us

A very warm welcome to our website.

Greatstone Primary School is a Foundation School with thirteen classes and three hundred and sixty pupils. Our well maintained rural school is set in large, open grounds, close to the sandy beach of the south east coast. We are fortunate to have excellent buildings, superb facilities, first class resources and dedicated staff. We also have a fifty-two place, purpose built nursery.

We hope this website will tell you everything you need to know about our school, a place where the supportive ethos, coupled with high expectations, ensures our children maximise their potential.

With the backing of governors and parents, we set and adhere to values and expectations that we believe our own children should follow and should expect to receive from others. With such comprehensive support both children and staff are able to work in a happy, relaxed and supportive atmosphere where everyone feels valued, safe, unthreatened and hopefully proud and pleased to be part of Greatstone School.

We hope you will find our website interesting and informative, either as a current parent or carer, as someone who is considering sending your child here in the future, or simply as someone who is interested in our school.

Nicola Wood.

Good evening

Given that last year we dressed in red and white to “support” England in the men’s World Cup Semi Final match, (we also moved Meet the Teacher if you remember!!!) I feel it’s only right that we do the same for our women’s team. This is a great achievement and one that I feel as educators, we should promote for our own girls. So, on Tuesday, I invite your child to come to school dressed in our national colours of red and white. It’s short notice I know…I’ve only just thought this through! And please don’t go and buy anything specially. I can’t promise the same razzmatazz with the bunting but I’ll do my best for music at the start of school.

Last Friday the weather was kind enough to give us a glorious Summer Fete. Thank you for your tremendous support which enabled the hardworking PTFA to raise and amazing £1,916 for school funds. Brilliant!

We are also doing really well with our recycling of the crisp and other packets we already have £5 in the kitty. Keep them coming!

Sadly Infant sports was rained off but we have a new date for next Tuesday. Finding a suitable time with a very busy school schedule isn't easy so I'm really hoping there won't be any more of those pesky thunderstorms.

The Junior sports yesterday and the Reception class one earlier in the week were both successful and thank you for cheering us all on. It's lovely to see the children happy and smiling and engaged in sport.

Don't forget to put the Meet the Teacher event in your diary Wednesday 10th July at 7pm. (new Reception parents is at 6pm) This is an opportunity for you to meet your child's teacher for next year and to see where their classroom is. It's not really a suitable event for children to attend (hence the later timing) as they will have visited and met their teacher prior to this. At the start of the evening I will speak about the curriculum etc as I know some of you have worries about split year group classes. I will do my best to put those concerns to rest.

Infant Sports
Given the heavy overnight rain and the predicted further thunderstorms and showers, we shall postpone today’s infant sports day. I shall let you know of a new date once I have consulted with staff. We want everyone to enjoy a safe and happy event so I hope you understand and respect the reason behind this decision.

At the moment it is my intention that KS 2 sports will go ahead as planned tomorrow.

My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

We are looking forward to Friday (14th June) and our annual Summer Fete (please pray for sunshine!). The PTFA are working so hard to make it a fabulous event and have been busy sourcing some amazing prizes for the Grand Prize a well as the main £100, that you could win:
£40.00 Lash Eyebrow tint at Eleven
MOT Colin Wood Engineering
3 X £25 vouchers for Taste
1 Month membership at the Marsh Academy Leisure Centre
A bottle of "Tattinger" champagne
1 Day ticket for Leeds Castle
That's just a flavour of some the brilliant prizes on offer, so we would really appreciate your efforts on ticket selling!
We shall also have all the traditional fete stalls, as well as the ever popular Bouncy Castle and Ice Cream van. In addition are hoping to have some Pony Rides too!
We are grateful for you your donations of cakes, tombola prizes and bottles for the bottle tombola. Just one last request: If anyone is into making 'fancy pants' cup cakes we are hoping to have a "Vintage" cake stall (as well as the cake plate cake stall) so contributions to this would also be much appreciated.

Thank you as always for your support. I look forward to seeing you on Friday.
