School development priorities

The things we are working on this academic year to make our school even better:

Maths development

Amazing mathematicians

All children acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of maths.


English development

Talk for learning

Children acquire an extensive, rich and varied vocabulary and strong subject knowledge to support talk and reading comprehension.

Behaviour and relationships 

Being like Schola, Respectus, Benesse

All children know and display the expected personal behaviours which underpin the school’s values and rules for life.

Attendance focus

  • In school on time and every day, arrive at 8.45am, registration at 8.55am
  • Absent – phone school on 020 8980 2413 – only for high temperature, vomiting, diarrhoea and childhood illnesses like chicken pox
  • No holidays in term time
  • Please make sure we have two telephone numbers to contact you in an emergency

Separated families

We are respectful of the sensitivities around families where parents live apart from each other. If any parent wishes to receive information about their child who attends our school we are happy to offer annual reports as well as updates on their child’s progress. All parents also will have full access to the school website.
