We hope you enjoy finding out about our school.
Welcome to Sherwood Park Primary School
‘Learning for life Together’.
Sherwood Park is a welcoming and inclusive two-form entry primary school in Bexley, with 450 children on roll and offering 52 part-time Nursery places. In our 2013 OFSTED inspection we were delighted to be graded as Good, in all areas, undoubtedly the result of excellent teamwork by the children, staff, parents and governors.
In 2013 we became and academy and formed part of an umbrella trust, The Penhill Trust, with Blackfen Girls School and Hurstmere School for boys. This puts us in the enviable position as a primary school of not only having access to some excellent secondary school resources and facilities but also guaranteed secondary school places at the two schools for all our pupils.
Here at Sherwood Park we have an excellent reputation and an ethos of hard work, respect and fairness. Supported by a team of hard working, talented and dedicated staff, our children are happy and well behaved and have an outstanding attitude to learning. Our aim is not only for all children to reach their potential academically, but also through educating the whole child, to prepare them for a full and useful life and to develop in them a passion for learning. We recognise that all children have talents and interests and foster these through a range of experiences and opportunities both curricular and extra curricular.
Our expectation is that all children are well mannered and show care, consideration and kindness to those around them. We also expect all children to appreciate and celebrate the richness of our multi-cultural community and individual children’s needs as evidenced by our school mission statement ‘Respect everyone, Look after what we have, Work together and Enjoy what we do’. And for all parents and carers to reinforce these important values at home.
We pride ourselves on providing a warm and friendly environment and as such have an open door policy for any concerns or ideas for improving the school that parents, carers and pupils may have. If you are not already part of the Sherwood Park Community we look forward to meeting with you at one of our open days and forging the strong home and school partnership which will enable your child to make amazing progress, life-long friends and be part of the success story that continues to unfold at Sherwood Park Primary School.
