Our Ethos and Values

Our Values and School Ethos
Welcome to Shoreham Village School’s website. We are a Kent County Council Maintained Primary School located in the beautiful rural village setting of Shoreham and we are fully supported and valued by our community.

It is our belief that children thrive in an environment where they are praised, encouraged and cared for - this is what we endeavour to provide. It is our intention to ensure that every child strives to do their best and attain their highest standards at work and play.

At Shoreham Village School, we help all our children to succeed and feel good about themselves so that they can make a full contribution to society as skilful, happy and well balanced individuals.

Our aim at Shoreham Village School is to build a partnership between home and school which will enhance children’s educational development.  Such a partnership will enable them to take full advantage of all that our village school has to offer.

Ours is a happy school with high hopes and ambitions for all our children and we welcome the opportunity to work with parents to ensure that everything is done in the best interests of the children at all times.

As a small school, we take every opportunity to work, learn and play alongside other local schools.  We are part of the the Sevenoaks Partnership of Primary Schools, a network of over 30 local schools with whom we participate in a range of activities that benefit pupils, parents and staff.

If you are interested in finding out more about the School, please contact the school office to arrange a visit. we will be delighted to answer any questions you may have and to give you an opportunity to see the School.
