On behalf of the staff, children and governors I would like to welcome you to The Gateway Primary Academy website.
I am proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of The Gateway Primary Academy; a one form entry primary school nestled between Bluewater shopping centre and Dartford town centre.
At The Gateway, we develop happy, confident and secure children in a calm, nurturing, stimulating and creative environment. Our aim is to ensure that all of our children are able to achieve their full potential; that they become successful learners, confident individuals and that they leave us ready for the next stage in their learning journey.
We have high expectations of all learners and provide personalised support allowing all children to make the best progress possible. This ensures that standards of achievements are consistently high throughout the school. In addition to academic success, we have participated in music festivals, excelled in district sporting competitions and are committed to developing the complete child ensuring that they understand the value of being a British and global citizen.
The triangulation between children, parents and staff is central to children’s success. We have a talented and dedicated team who work hard to plan and provide an exciting, engaging curriculum where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. As parents and carers we encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education throughout their time here at The Gateway.
I hope you enjoy looking at our website and that it gives you a flavour of the wonderful experiences that are available to children at The Gateway.
