I am very pleased and proud to welcome you to Rye Community Primary School and The Pugwash Nursery, a place where there is laughter and learning every day.


The Staff work in close partnership with parents to provide a nurturing atmosphere, in which the focus for every child is on celebrating their individual achievements and subsequently, giving them the support to achieve their next target. We expect everyone in our school to give their best, at all times. We are a ‘Good School’, as acknowledged by our latest Ofsted Inspection, though we are now aiming to achieve ‘Outstanding’, something which we regularly share with our children, who are rightly, proud to ‘Aim for Gold’.


The Pugwash Nursery joined our team in September 2014 giving us the exciting opportunity of providing an engaging curriculum from the age of two. Together as Rye Community Primary School, we inspire our children to have high aspirations for themselves; to be motivated learners; to enjoy a challenge and develop their independent learning skills.  When you enter our buildings, you will notice; from the office throughout the corridors, the warmth of the welcome, the smile on the faces and the ‘buzz’ of learning, emanating from the classrooms, that these are places where people want to be.


It is a privilege to be leading Rye Primary as Headteacher and with my excellent team, continue to provide a high quality education for the children in the Rye area.


Jane Howard
