The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Stranger Danger

Kent Police have produced a document which can be shared with children. It can be found here.

Road Safety

Children across the school learn about road safety and every year, our Year 6 children have the opportunity to take part in a Bikeability Road Safety Week, earning themselves certificates and ensuring they can be safe on the road when cycling.

E-safety

The internet is a wonderful thing, but you must always be careful when using it. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.

Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.

Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
