Learning through rights allows our pupils to cultivate positive relationships with both peers and adults, supporting their education for life.

We're fortunate to have a Children's Centre co-located on our school site meaning we can offer education, and a wide range of services for families and their children aged 0 to 11. Our school leads the South West London Maths Hub, the Wandle Teaching School Alliance and the Wandle Early Years Hub.

Lower Phase

Jun 22, 2018

This week in Lower Phase we are so proud and impressed with the amazing performance of our youngest children in Nursery class assembly. The children all worked hard and showed how brave they could be to perform to such a large audience. Well done to all the children and adults who helped them get performance ready, your hard work really paid off!

Middle Phase

Jul 13, 2018

This week, it has been Curriculum Week and all of the children have had the opportunity to learn about a range of different topics and participate in a variety of activities linked to the curriculum.

The children developed their teamwork skills during a PE afternoon by making human chains and worked with children from other year groups to create posters linked to famous scientists.

The children also participated in active drama games such Evolution where they could evolve into a different animal when they won rock, paper, scissors! Year 3 played ‘Guess my sweet’ where they took turns in the hot seat to guess the sweet by listening to adjectives that the class gave as clues. This was followed by an active thinking activity where the class were asked challenging questions and had to think of creative answers. 

Year 2 became news reporters and worked in groups to plan and act out a news report based on Hurricane Irma.

It has been a jam-packed Curriculum Week and the whole phase have worked really hard.  Well done Middle Phase!


Upper Phase

Year 5 have been at Wick Court Farm, busy learning about farm life and enjoying their time in the countryside. The children have been up early every day to help out and been a real credit to their school. We’re looking forward to welcoming them back later today.

Year 6 have been busy practising for their upcoming performance of the Lion King on Tuesday. The children have been creating props, costumes and accessories all week.

They have also been taking part in Curriculum Week where they have taken part in so many different activities! On Monday they were even lucky enough to visit St John Bosco were they learnt how to make scones!
