This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

Our Young Poets to Appear in Print

Our Key Stage Two children were recently entered into the Young Writers’ latest poetry competition, called 'Poetry Emotions' and we’re delighted to announce that 92 of them are being published in 'Poetry Emotions - South London Verses'.  This is a great way to showcase our School’s creative ability as well as boost pupils’ confidence and enjoyment in writing poetry.

Our Key Stage One children were entered into the Young Writers’ poetry competition, called 'Sense Poetry' and we’re delighted to announce that 44 of them are being published in 'Sense Poetry – South London Poets'.

Young Writers has been publishing children’s poetry and creative writing since 1991.  We will receive a complimentary copy of the book once it’s published, which will be available to view at the office.

If your child is being published, a letter will have been sent to you. Please remember to give permission for the work to be included – you don’t have to order a copy for your child to be included, but you do have to give your consent for the work to be published. Please refer to the letter you’ve received to see how to give permission, make any changes to the typeset proof and/or name and the deadline this is required by. If you have any questions you can contact Young Writers directly on 01733 890066 from 8.00am-5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Published pupils are then in with a chance of winning a prize, plus the top schools win prizes too!

We’ve all thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this competition, pupils have been inspired and motivated.

If you’d like to continue to encourage your child to enjoy creative writing more at home, do have a look at array of free resources at Young Writers’ website – www.youngwriters.co.uk – this includes writing workshops, creative activity packs, book reviews and guest author interviews.

We look forward to seeing our pupils in print!
