Brenzett Church of England Primary School has a strong Christian commitment. We believe through Christian teaching and example children will benefit and be enriched.
We aim to educate children with a firm foundation of Christian knowledge and experience in order to encourage their spiritual development. This means respecting the beliefs and values of other people whether they have a religious background or not.
All the children participate in a daily act of Collective Worship. These reflect the Christian foundation and character of our school. All the children are taught Religious Education (RE). We follow the Canterbury Diocesan RE scheme.
Any parent has the right to withdraw their child from Collective Worship and Religious Education. Please speak to the Headteacher if you have any questions about this.
Who we are
Brenzett is a Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School, for children aged 4 to 11. We are a co-educational day school which serves the Romney Marsh area south of Ashford.
As of 01 October 2016 we became an Academy under the Diocese of Canterbury's Academy Trust (Aquila). Our acts or worship reflect Anglican beliefs, practices and values and we strive to maintain a distinctive Christian ethos and feel to our school.
The teaching staff currently comprises 5 teachers in addition to the Headteacher. There is also an experienced team of teaching assistants working alongside the teachers, including Higher Level Teaching Assistants. Our maximum number of children on roll is 140.
There are currently five classes. Children remain in the school until they are 11. After this, the majority transfer to one of the local Secondary schools for their secondary education. The school actively works with parents to ensure the smoothest possible transition to secondary education. Parents are offered information sessions to assist in their choice of secondary education.
Brenzett CEP School is proud to be an active member of Aquila. To find out more about the Trust, visit their website www.aquilatrust.co.uk
