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.
As you may be aware, we had a visit from the Regional Schools Commissioner back in September and he visited us again on January 23rd. His feedback this time around was that he can see great improvement compared to what he saw during his visit in September. I have attached the highlights from his visit. I think that you will agree that his report shows that we are making good progress.
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.
