Head Teacher, Mrs Stephanie Edmonds
Welcome! We are privileged to educate over 400 pupils aged 2 to 7, as we build upon our long tradition of excellence at our Amazing school.
We hope you will want your child to come to one of the best schools in Croydon where we regard each child as a unique and special human being with potential to achieve the very best in all areas of their learning. We are passionate and determined to do everything to ensure the brightest futures for them all, not just for the time that your child is with us, but to prepare him/her to make the best choices long after they leave us.
We are delighted with our achievements over recent times. We had our Section 48 Inspection; Statutory inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) in July and were judged Outstanding in all four core questions .
Our very low turnover of staff shows the dedication of our great team and in turn we are able to attract dedicated newly qualified teachers who bring a fresh outlook to grow and develop in our collegiate and nurturing school. In that respect, we have a Family Liaison Officer who is available to help families with additional support when necessary.
More recently, we had an Ofsted inspection in January 2019. Inspectors recognised that leaders promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development extremely well. ‘Pupils say that they feel safe in school; parents and inspectors agree’ (inspection report, 23-24 January 2019). Phonics is taught well, the teaching of reading across the school is good, progression in writing is evident in pupils’ workbooks and effective teaching in mathematics enables pupils to have a good understanding of the subject and make strong progress to achieve well. Our Teaching Assistants support pupils well; they are skilled and make a strong contribution to learning.
Inspectors also noted that pupils are respectful towards each other and adults. As a result, a caring and nurturing environment exists within the school. There are high expectations of behaviour which is modelled excellently by all adults in the school.
We place high value on relationships to honour one another as though we, each of us, are children of God. We ensure that every one is valued and celebrated regardless of race, gender, age, disability, religion or socio-economic background.
If you are a prospective parent, I hope you will come to see our beautiful school (and the amazing people in it!) on one of our tours. I wish you every blessing as you make such an important decision about which school to send your child.
