Find out more about behaviour
Behaviour is excellent, particularly in the classroom. Pupils set themselves very high standards for behaviour. In lessons, they invariably behave impeccably of their own volition. Lunchtimes are lively, good-natured times. School councillors are quick to notice noisy or inappropriate behaviour and give useful and thoughtful suggestions on lunchtime improvements, such as handing out colouring books.

Children can be involved in a range of activities, including taking on responsibilities and participating in the wider life of the school. Find out more about our enrichment activities.
The school has a duty to ensure that all parents understand our responsibility to safeguard the well-being of all pupils and that this responsibility requires us to have a child protection policy and procedures. As part of these procedures the school can make a direct referral to the statutory child welfare agencies including the Police and/or Social Services without involving the parents if they have concerns about the safety of any child.
Mrs Thompson (Headteacher), Mrs OptHolt (Deputy Headteacher) and Mrs Brazier (Inclusion Co-ordinator) are the nominated people for Child Protection.
If you have any concerns about the welfare of children in our school please share those concerns with them. Please leave a message with the school office or telephone the main school number on 020 8894 5729.

Our inclusion coordinator advises on good practice in line with latest Government and local guidance and any changes are reflected in our Inclusion, Equalities and Special Needs policies and our information report. These are reviewed annually by our Governors. We have an inclusion leaflet for parents and carers.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy outlines how we support families who are eligible for the Government’s Pupil Premium Grant. Our Accessibility Plan is reviewed annually by our Governing Body. This enables us to consider any additional actions to increase access to the school and the curriculum by children with disabilities.
The headteacher is totally committed to the school providing the best for all its pupils. Her infectious ambition and high expectations are shared by pupils, staff, parents and carers alike. One parent commented, 'The headteacher is ‘hands on’, approachable and a strong but friendly leader.'
Parents and carers play an active and important role in the life of our school. We have a friendly and award-winning PTA with a full calendar of social and fund raising events. Everyone is involved through their Parent Governors, Class Representatives, weekly newsleteers and e-school - our password-protected intranet. Find out more about our Parent Teacher Association
