We are proud of our many awards and achievements. The awards are nationally recognised and we have gained them in a variety of areas.
(Click on the headings below to find out more.)
We were awarded Healthy Schools Status in 2008. The award is presented to schools who promote a healthy lifestyle throughout the school and in the curriculum.
We are fortunate to have beautiful outdoor facilities which our children, staff and visitors admire.
The children put a great deal of effort (with the help of our gardeners and staff) into making our gardens a real show piece and we are delighted that all our hard work has been recognised. We have received awards for our beautiful gardens in recent years by winning a variety of accolades from London in Bloom, (2010 Certificate of Excellence) and Croydon in Bloom(2010 Gold Award for best school garden).
We received the International School Award in December 2010. This award is in recognition of our links on a global level. Our teaching of languages; cultural awareness; language day; Africa week etc helped us to achieve this.
Through completing our silver Sing Up Award, the profile of music and singing within the school and community has gone from strength to strength. Singing has brought our school even closer together.
In October 2009 we were thrilled to win a national award for our:
‘outstanding educational and social inclusion of a young deafblind child’
The award was presented to us by Louise Minchin of BBC News at a ceremony in a London Hotel.
We received the Activemark in 2008 and have carried on receiving it each year since, as the mark just carries forward if you continue to meet the criteria – 90% or more of pupils across the school are undertaking at least 2 hours high quality PE and school sport a week.
Reading Connects is a network of thousands of primary and secondary schools that are all aiming to improve their pupils’ reading attitudes and increase how much their pupils read. We aim to achieve this through a variety of strategies and I hope you will agree that our welcoming library and reading schemes encourage children to want to read.
We received this certification as our school has been judged to be good or outstanding in the most recent OFSTED inspection. Trainee head teachers undertake a placement with us ‘to raise aspirations and enable them to experience excellence, and encourage them to be influenced by our very best school leaders.’
