RAMSGATE ARTS PRIMARY SCHOOL
Head of School: Mr Nick Budge
Executive Headteacher: Mrs Michaela Lewis
Our vision is to provide a high-quality, rounded and creative education, through which every child can experience the joy of learning and also be supported to reach his or her potential. This is made possible through a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning, ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and maths. This academic rigor goes hand in hand with our belief that developing a love of the arts - music, art dance and drama, will enrich our children and offer them an all encompassing school experience.
Ramsgate Arts Primary School is proud to be a trail blazer in providing a specialist Arts curriculum to primary age children in The Isle of Thanet.
We endeavour to nurture and build on creativity. Through our Arts Curriculum, our children will be taught the skills of creative subjects. Our specialist teaching team will guide children in learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic as well as creative thinking skills. The result will be children who not only have a secure educational foundation, but also have the ability to think outside the box and channel their creativity enabling them to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
We aim to create a calm yet highly stimulating environment, within which every child can feel secure and grow in self-confidence, gaining the necessary personal, social and academic life-skills to succeed in society today as well as preparing them for a largely unknown tomorrow. Classrooms are full of children motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons which encourage them to develop autonomy and become independent learners. Our staff are passionate about the children’s success and ensure that Ramsgate Arts Primary provides a first class education for every child. One Childhood: One Chance!Whatever a child’s background or starting point, we want to make sure that they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. Every lesson at our school is creative and there is plenty of time for children to think, to play, to discover and wonder.
Each child is taught in the way that suits them best and we step in quickly if a change is needed. For some children, this might involve one-to-one support if they are finding something difficult and for others it could mean stretching them more to keep them interested.
We want the school to feel friendly and welcoming. Our children are taught to respect each other and their teachers. There is a zero tolerance approach to any type of bullying.
