About Molehill Primary Academy

At Molehill Primary Academy we have created a culture that enables both pupils and staff to thrive and achieve their very best. The Academy was opened in 1954 to serve the southern part of the Shepway Estate and the roads leading to it. It caters for boys and girls from the age of three to eleven years. It stands on beautiful grounds which we have specifically developed to aid curriculum studies.

Relationships between staff at all levels, and the children, are highly positive and this creates a warm and vibrant atmosphere in lessons and during social times. With the support and guidance of leaders, teachers provide well-organised, calm and purposeful classrooms in which children can enjoy their learning challenges. The positive and caring ethos at Molehill is combined with a clear, relentless focus and an ambition that all pupils can and will achieve well, regardless of their different starting points. Teachers have embedded a culture of high expectations; we will all do whatever it takes to create better life opportunities for our pupils, they deserve the very best. We help support and develop one another in an open and supportive environment. This extends across the Trust, allowing us to work with other academies, either within the cluster or further afield, whilst still maintaining our own personality and driving our own priorities.

To enhance our curriculum delivery, we are an academy for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), an IB World School. This is an inquiry led framework that develops independent learners and posits personal success as essential for academic achievement, and learners who continue to thrive. We employ conferencing, high quality learning conversions and scaffolding with no written feedback, as our evaluation and feedback approach.
