About Us

“The team have high expectations of what pupils can achieve and make it clear that there is no place for mediocrity and half measures.” OFSTED Mar 2013

Westcourt Primary & Nursery School is a smaller than average primary school on the outskirts of Gravesend, which caters for children from 3-11 years of age. Our school is in a high deprivation area. Most of our children enter our Nursery and or Reception with skills significantly below national averages. The majority of our children are White British with those from Traveller backgrounds, White Eastern European, Indian and Black Africans creating the next largest groups; in total Westcourt currently has twenty different ethnicities. All of our children fall into at least one vulnerable group; 62% Pupil Premium, 30% English as an Additional Language (EAL) and 16% Additional Educational Needs and Disabilities (AEND) and 1% Children in Care and a small minority not in any group becoming a vulnerable group of their own.
