In memory of Barbara Padmore …
Eternal rest grant to her, Oh Lord, and perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.

Achieve Your Dreams
We will build a community in Medway where children are more than just educated and where all feel safe and supported. They will be empowered to change their own lives and the lives of those around them. They will be able to stand up and become pillars of the community making a positive difference.
We will be good role models who inspire through love of learning and be motivated to make a positive impact on each other’s lives. Together we will continually strive to remove the barriers to success and fear of failure.
We will provide a culture of mutual respect and acceptance with children moving onto their next venture with the skills and values to set them on the path to achieve their dreams. Our school will take pride in leading the children in Medway on their journey – both educationally and for life: enabling them to drive their own futures to greater success and shape our diverse community for the better.
A Balfour Teacher is respectful, consistent and an inspirational role model. They deliver exciting, vibrant and well -pitched lessons in an optimistic and humorous style. They are honest and able to deliver the hard messages whilst still using praise and positive affirmation wisely to encourage and enthuse.
A Balfour Pupil, on leaving us at the end of year 6 is a confident, self -motivated and kind individual who is enthusiastic and eager to develop their full potential in both curricula and social areas of their lives. They are a credit to both their families and to their Junior School.
