As you are probably aware, the government confirmed yesterday that certain year groups in primary schools will soon begin to return to school. To enable this to happen and to ensure the safety and well-being of all pupils and staff, Swale Academies Trust is completing rigorous risk assessments in all schools.

Our school is now preparing the site for wider reopening and ensuring that the right equipment is in place. A phased return of Reception, Years 1 and 6 will start from Monday 8th June. Detailed information about new arrangements can be found here.


Our Home Learning


At Shinewater Primary & Nursery School we welcome children, their parents, carers and families into a friendly, happy and hardworking environment where respect for others, positive attitudes towards work and behaviour are encouraged and nurtured. Shinewater is a school where all children are valued and where all staff work hard to help every child reach his or her full potential. Children work in a very caring, stimulating environment and respond well to the schools positive discipline policy. ‘Where Children Come First’.

Staff & Governors

All members of staff here at Shinewater Primary & Nursery School, both teaching and non- teaching, are committed to providing a broad, balanced and relevant education for all the children within a supportive and caring environment. They seek to build the self-esteem of all children through a policy of equal opportunity. We ensure that relationships throughout the school are based on mutual trust and respect as the school strongly believes that it is through secure relationships that the children respond with positive attitudes and understanding of their work and to others.


Parents are encouraged to take part in their children’s education and are welcome into school whenever possible.

We hope you enjoy your browse around our site.

Kind regards,

Mrs Burbidge & Mrs Kaufman
