Secondary Transfer

The secondary school application process is open with a deadline for applications at the end of the month.

Lewisham have made a short film about what it is like to start Secondary School here in the borough.

As with so many things the process of looking at schools and applying has been effected by the current restrictions around Coronavirus. To help our Year 6 families we have added a new Tab on the website where we have pooled the resources and information needed to make an application this year:

If you, or any one you know within the school community, need any help with this process then please contact the school.

Wear Red – Friday 16th October

SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD

As a school serving a rich and diverse community, we have always prided ourselves on the equality of the experiences offered to all of our learners and their families, irrespective of background. However, as recent events across the globe have shown, the world is not always as fair and respectful as it needs to be towards all of it citizens.

Therefore, we are asking all of our children (and adults) to show their solidarity and support for the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ initiative. To do this, children simply have to wear an item of red clothing to school, this Friday, 16th October. No money needed, simply a collective act to raise the awareness across the school of the need for equality and respect for all.

We look forward to seeing a sea of red at the gates on Friday morning.

Biome Videos – Year 5 & 6

This term, each class has made a short video to showcase their learning about their new class name. This year, each class is named after a different biome or habitat that can be found on planet earth. This was used as a focus for the children’s learning as they returned to education after, what was for many, an extended time away from the school.

Our hope is that by creating a common theme across the school we are raising awareness of the rich diversity of the planet, highlighting some of the threats -mostly man made – that these habitats face and, within the school, creating connectivity and shared values. All this in a time when coming together as a school has never been more difficult to do and, at the same time, never been more important.

We hope you enjoy watching them as much as the children did making them!

Visitors Guidelines

follow the guidelines on blackboard

Whilst we are trying to keep the number of adults visiting the school to an absolute minimum, we recognise there are times when parents/carers may need to access the school site.

This can only be done by prior agreement, either by contacting the school office for an appointment, or, when the school contacts a parent/carer directly. In both instances, we ask that you take a moment to read over the guidelines for visiting the school.

You can also consult our Visitors Policy, which can be found in the ‘policies’ section of the school website.
