Welcome to our school 


Welcome to our great school! And a great school it is, not only because of the recognition it receives but because the children at the school achieve great things.

I am privileged to be the Principal of a school which has an extraordinary staff team who work seamlessly with massively committed parents. The very high standards we achieve in all areas emerge very naturally from this effective partnership.

As with all effective organisations, the school evolves and develops its philosophies and practices over time and continues its never ending quest for child centred education.  Please also see the policies that help shape our ideals for more information. 

Visitors to our school invariably comment on the ethos of the school ("warm and welcoming" and "respectful") and the manner in which the pupils are engaged in their learning. Our pupils smile a lot even when the very best outcomes are asked of them.

School Reminders 

Safeguarding

We are constantly monitoring safeguarding procedures, please note that parents must not enter the school building without a member of staff.  Children must be collected from all after school clubs from the main reception area.

If you need to speak to your child's class teachers please contact or visit the main office or email the teacher directly.

 

Punctuality

Please note that the school begins with a drift in start at 8:50am. We are noticing more children are arriving after 9am; please ensure your child arrives punctually.

We have also noticed late collection from after school clubs. Please ensure that the children are collected on time.

 

Singapore Maths

Here are some fantastic videos, all about 5 minutes long, explaining the fundamentals of Singapore Maths. These may be really helpful with homework so you could watch them with your child.
