Welcome to Charing Church of England Primary School

You are warmly welcomed to the Charing Church of England Primary School Website. We hope that you find this website useful, informative and easy to navigate. If you would like to know more about us, please come and visit – we love to have visitors and show people just what makes us special!

We are a small village primary school in the beautiful village of Charing, close to Ashford, that is growing rapidly. We currently have over 130 children on roll and 6 classes from years R through to 6. In September 2022, we were all very excited as the school opened our preschool class, Ducklings for 2 to 4 year olds. If you are interested in sending your child to the school, please contact the school office for more information. In October 2021, the school maintained its ‘Good’ Ofsted grading; the report can be found in the key information section of this website.

Every child in our school is valued as an individual and we have a supportive, nurturing team to make sure that every child and parent feels supported and happy at our school.

We aim to promote distinctive, inclusive communities of learning that seek to be underpinned by Christian values sourced in the Gospel narrative, enriching the whole educational experience. We aspire to excellence; to secure the best possible outcomes for children and young people, enabling them to fulfill their potential and make a worthwhile contribution to our diverse, dynamic society.

Charing CE Primary School is proud to be an active member of Aquila Trust. To find out more, please visit their website:

Our Vision

Our inclusive school is a place of creative learning where all talents are developed, celebrated and enjoyed.

We nurture all to be curious, passionate and resilient lifelong learners.

As a community, we listen to, forgive and love one another so all can be confident in who they are.

Inspired by Jesus we walk beside each individual in our family by understanding and responding to their unique needs.

We have hope in all our children that they grow to be open, compassionate people of the world who stand up for what is right. 

Forgiveness – Resilience – Hope – Compassion – Friendship

Charing School is proud to be an active member of Aquila.
