Plaistow Primary School

Head Teacher's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Plaistow Primary School and Children’s Centre.

We are a collaborative, dynamic and unique learning community filled with laughter, friendship and high expectations for all.

Our school curriculum drivers are: joy, creativity and aspiration. These values underpin the curriculum, inform our decision making, and guide the way we interact with one another. 

At our school we work hard, challenge and believe in ourselves in order to learn, progress and achieve. Our children experience joy on their own unique learning journey in order for them to become creative, aspirational lifelong learners.

Reading and a love of books inspires what we do at Plaistow. We have filled our school and built our curriculum around books which are inclusive and diverse. They help our children explore a world they can love, challenge, change and protect. 

High quality texts are the basis for our thematic curriculum. Purposeful experiences enrich children’s vocabulary and put learning in reading, writing and maths into context. As a result, pupils make rapid progress and achieve across all subject areas. 

Plaistow is a creative school and children have an opportunity to express themselves through art, music and drama. We encourage the interests, talents and dreams of each individual child. We have a commitment to nurturing pupils’ social, emotional and physical health in order to equip them with the skills and attributes they will need for future success.

I hope that our website gives you a window into our happy and continuously improving school. Any one of our team would welcome the opportunity to show you around Plaistow or answer any questions you may have.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
