Welcome to Primary First, a Trust that truly celebrates and nurtures the diversity and distinctiveness of its partner schools. We are a growing network of 10 individual primaries across Bexley, Gravesham and Medway. All are at different points in their journey - each with a unique context, considerable strengths and specific opportunities. Our refreshingly collaborative way of working, enviable track record and deep understanding of primary-based learning gives us an unmistakeable edge in driving up standards in every area of school life.
The fabric of our organisation is a profound understanding of primary schools and an individual understanding of their contextual needs. Our aim is to be the first for pupils, for staff, for parents, for governance and for communities. In short, first for primary education.
Values are important to us. They are the cornerstone of our decision making. These values have been developed by our Head Teachers, our Education Directors and our CEO; they are the yardstick by which we judge ourselves. They are Adventure, Creativity and Excellence, with the overarching PFT education concepts of Knowledge, Personal Development and Connectivity.
From the first Induction Days, our participants have opportunities to network together across the Trust and beyond, attending Comparative Days where each of the schools showcase an element of expertise and an opportunity to network with other professionals who are in the earliest stages of their career.
Within our schools, we have a significant wealth of experience and excellent practice, and so we look to each and every one of our colleagues to lead the future and to be the change for themselves and the children in their care. Our CPD pathways are developed in line with our commitment to well-being and which promote efficient ways of working, through the use of new technologies, which enable everyone to fulfil their career aspirations. As a result, all of our participants have reached successful outcomes.
