Our aim here at Napier is to ensure that the academy becomes ‘outstanding’ as soon as possible and for it to become the number one choice for every parent living in Gillingham and the surrounding areas. The children, parents, staff, governors and our wider community are very proud of our hardworking school which has served our local area for many years. We certainly have a great deal to look back on with pride but we also believe that we should always enthusiastically challenge ourselves to continually enhance the provision for our children as they begin their lifelong learning journey. We want every child coming into school happy, curious and excited to learn.
The ethos of our school reflects the values and attitudes that characterise any caring family and community. The atmosphere of the school, the quality of relationships and the way in which the school helps to deal with difficulties all combine to develop children who will have a fair sense of justice and the ability to be valued citizens of the future.
At Napier Primary Academy we want to aim for our children to grow and develop in an environment where they are cared for, listened to and respected as well as being given consistent, secure and firm boundaries. We must aim for our children to develop lifelong learning skills, showing the ability to take responsibility for their own learning so that they can face future challenges with confidence.
Our key message is that we should aim to ensure each day presents exciting challenges thus creating a joy and thirst for knowledge in each individual child. We will always celebrate diversity and respect all children regardless of ability, gender, ethnicity or religion. As a school we must encourage children to recognise and build on their strengths, extending and developing their potential. We will always provide a happy, caring, supportive and positive learning atmosphere in our school where each child can achieve success.
When you visit us at Napier you will find a caring, inclusive and friendly staff team who make sure that everything that they do is centred around the children.
