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.

Welcome to Robins Class!

The Petham journey begins with the smallest members of our school in Robin’s class and what fun we have! Throughout the year we delve into 6 learning journeys including:

  • All About Me
  • Journeys and Celebrations
  • Wonderlands and Wonderful People
  • Once Upon A Time
  • Outside We Grow
  • At the Seaside.

We aim to create an exciting and engaging curriculum which   fosters young children’s natural curiosity and love of learning.       We are very lucky to have such beautiful grounds at Petham and   we have daily opportunities to learn outdoors and enjoy our  Woodland Wilderness area.

In Reception we learn through play with the support of our caring and experienced staff who help to develop and encourage the children’s ideas, explorations and new friendships. Our children are encouraged to be problem solvers, independent thinkers and confident learners. We work closely with our parents so that we can develop your child’s education together. Our main aim is to ensure your child is happy and has a positive and exciting learning experience at our school.
