Bearsted Primary Academy will nurture open-minded, successful learners who embody the Learner Profile Attributes in their learning, actions and life.

A broad and balanced curriculum is at the heart of an aspirational and successful academy. We shape our curriculum delivery through the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). As an accredited IB PYP academy, our curriculum development, intentions and scope are derived from a shared international understanding and rooted in the philosophy and ethos of the International Baccalaureate. Our curriculum delivery drives pupils to become lifelong learners who seek knowledge, truth and an understanding of their global context; and who respect and care for the world they live in and all those who live in it.

An inquiring learner is also an effective thinker, communicator and risk-taker. Our learners, both adult and pupil alike, will have agency as critical thinkers and take action as creative thinkers. They will reflect upon their successes, circumstances and barriers, making adaptations and finding solutions through open-minded and honest learning dialogue and conversations. This communication approach is known as conferencing within our academy.

Collaboration is pivotal to all that shapes the academy as by working together, we will all achieve together. Through an alliance between all stakeholders of the academy, through mutual care and respect, we will create an environment which fosters and promotes the importance of a principled approach to learning and teaching and caring for each other.
