Ebbsfleet Green Primary School – a brand new setting due to open September 2020 – invites local members of the community to the unveiling of the school campus plans. The public consultation event will be held from 4-8 pm on Tuesday 25 February at the Eastgate Centre in Springhead Parkway, DA11 8AD. Held in partnership with the school’s building company Kier Construction, GDM Architects, planning consultants DHA planning and Project Managers Gen 2, the public consultation is an opportunity for families to learn about the future school and meet key team members of the Ebbsfleet Green Primary community. Refreshments will be available as well as art activities to keep the youngest attendees entertained.
Built to serve the rapidly growing community in the new Ebbsfleet Garden City, Ebbsfleet Green Primary forms part of the Maritime Academy Trust; an educational charity catering for over 2600 pupils aged 3-11 across eight primary schools (seven with nurseries) based in London and Kent. Maritime Academy Trust follows an innovative entrepreneurial curriculum, designed to foster creativity and encourage pupils to adapt and succeed in the modern world, whilst ensuring excellent behaviour in every school.
This consultation is the first time that the permanent buildings for the Ebbsfleet Green campus will be revealed to the public. The event will help parents understand the exciting opportunity that the new school provides for children living in the community. Parents will be able to discuss the school and Trust’s child-led learning with Head Teacher Joanne Wilkinson-Tabi and Maritime CEO Nick Osborne. Nick is also a National Leader in Education, a title earned for his ‘exceptional’ leadership as Executive Head Teacher of Millennium, Brooklands, and Timbercroft Primary Schools, a position he held prior to founding Maritime Academy Trust.
Kathryn Jackman, Community Engagement Lead at Maritime Academy Trust, commented, “We are thrilled to share with the future families of Ebbsfleet Green Primary School our vision for the school and the pupils’ education – we can’t wait to see these plans become a reality. We have many more exciting events coming up which we hope North Kent residents will be able to attend, including an environmentally friendly family picnic later this year! ”
