Palm Bay Primary School is located on the Kent coast over looking Palm Bay and the North Sea between Margate and Broadstairs. It is a Local Authority (LA) maintained school catering for boys and girls in the primary phase of education, from 4 -11 years of age. It opened in September 1995 and has had five highly successful Ofsted inspections and reports.
There are 13 classes. Currently in Reception and Infants we have two classes per year group. In Juniors there is still a split system e.g.Year 5/6 will contain older Year 5 children and younger Year 6 children. Some flexibility exists in the allocation process, all decisions are made by the Headteacher.
The number of children on roll is approximately 368.
