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.

Creative Curriculum

Our aim at Dymchurch Primary School is to ensure that children receive a broad and balanced curriculum.

Our curriculum encourages children to develop a real love of learning, with choice, challenge and independence.

We follow the National Curriculum which builds skills and knowledge progressively throughout each child’s time at primary school. We are passionate about enriching our curriculum with real life experiences to deliver a real depth of learning.
