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. 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.
In July 2017, we converted to an academy as part of the Aquila, The Diocese of Canterbury Multi-Academy Trust. We believe that this is a positive, exciting step for our school and will enable us to have a greater say in the future of our school.

Parent & Ofsted Views
Pupils are nurtured and safe, and have very positive attitudes to learning which is helping them to make excellent progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
I feel able to talk to any member of staff and know they will do their best to help me with my concerns. I feel my child is challenged in lessons but is also cared for and safe at this school.
Teaching has improved to be typically strong in all key stages and learning is now well-matched to pupils’ needs.
