'At Sheldwich Primary School we believe in achieving consistently high standards of work and behaviour in a happy and caring environment'.



We are proud of our reputation as a friendly, caring and welcoming school and our aim is that all our children should be happy and successful during their time here. We are a one form entry academy school with eight classes a roll of 263 at present. We were inspected by Ofsted in November 2012 and found to be an 'outstanding' school and then again in July 2018 when Ofsted upheld their previous inspection, meaning we are still, 'OUTSTANDING'. The latest report is attached below; however, here are a few excerpts:


  • You lead the school with passion and enthusiasm 
  • Pupils are remarkably well behaved, polite and enthusiastic
  • 'The staff here are caring, compassionate and inspiring; a dream team ...' (quote from a parent)
  • Pupils are highly productive and make great progress.
  • Work to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is exceptionally strong.
  • Teachers' judicious use of questioning ensures that pupils are able to explain their understanding of what they are reading, to an advanced level.

Our school community enables our children to reach and extend their potential whilst growing in self-confidence, respecting themselves and the people and environment around them. We work in close partnership with our parents and value the support and contribution they make to our school.


At Sheldwich we have much to celebrate, combining the friendliness and values of a village school with modern technology and quality teaching. Set in the most beautiful rural location, we are also a Forest School, which gives our children the opportunity to take full advantage of our local woods.  Apart from an exciting, challenging and stimulating curriculum, we offer a modern, well-maintained school site, friendly and approachable staff, a wide range of extra- curricular activities and extended school in the form of Early Birds, Night Owls and Little Hedgehogs Pre-School.

We hope you enjoy your trip around our site – although of course, this is only a tiny glimpse of life at Sheldwich Primary School!


Prospective parents are very welcome to visit and we would be pleased to show you around. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
