Welcome to Archbishop Courtenay Primary School


We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Please see the statement below that has been issued by Kent Police, in relation to the email that was received by some schools today:


Kent Police:

On Wednesday, 28 March 2018, police received a number of reports that a threatening email had been sent to schools in Kent. The message is being treated as a hoax with schools across the country receiving similar emails.

Kent Police take hoaxes extremely seriously and will pursue those responsible. They divert police resources and cause unnecessary disruption and alarm to the public.




Archbishop Courtenay did receive this email today. I immediately called the police who advised me that it was being treated as a hoax. Their advice was to leave school open, to be extra vigilant at home time but not to alarm parents throughout the day. As a school we will always follow the advice given to us under these circumstances.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries.

Latest HMI report

As you will be aware, we were recently visited by an HMI for our first visit. Below is the report on his findings. We will now be expecting our second visit around July time. If you have any questions that you want to ask about the report then please do not hesitate to come into school or contact myself or Mrs Magner.



About our School

I am proud and honoured to be the Headteacher of Archbishop Courtenay Primary School. Our Christian values of Forgiveness, Fellowship and Compassion underpin everything we do at our school. We work together as a community, within Aquila the Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust, to ensure success. Our school is a safe, lively and purposeful place to work and learn where we respect each other’s rights and we treat others how we would like to be treated ourselves.

If you would like to visit the school, you are most welcome. My staff and I will happily answer any questions you may have and provide you with an opportunity to see what we offer in action.


“Our vision is to create an outstanding, flagship school serving our local community, unlocking and developing the potential of all our

wonderful children”


A thought for us all

Children Learn What They Live

A child who lives with criticism
learns to condemn.
A child who lives with hostility
learns to fight.
A child who lives with ridicule
learns to be shy.
A child who lives with shame
learns to feel guilty.
A child who lives with tolerance
learns to be patient.
A child who lives with encouragement
learns confidence.
A child who lives with praise
learns appreciation.
A child who lives with fairness
learns justice.
A child who lives with kindness and consideration
learns respect.
A child who lives with security
learns to have faith.
A child who lives with approval
learns to like himself.
A child who lives with acceptance and friendship
learns to find love in the world.
