What the school says...

Crawford Primary School is a 3 form entry school based in Camberwell, South London. We joined Gipsy Hill Federation in 2011 and during our most recent Ofsted Inspection in March 2013, we were judged as Outstanding in all areas. However, we believe that the outstanding grade that we have received is merely a benchmark and we seek to improve on our practice daily to ensure that we are consistently challenging ourselves to provide the very best platinum education for our children.

"OUTSTANDING PROVISION IN THE NURSERY MEANS PUPILS GET OFF TO AN EXCELLENT START IN THEIR LEARNING." MARCH 2013 OFSTED REPORT

At Crawford Primary School we believe in and value every child and adult who enters our doors. We encourage each person to show value and respect towards one another, joining together to build a happy, forward-thinking community. We encourage the parents and carers of the children who attend our school to play an active role in the education of their children. One of our favourite times of the week is Friday mornings when all parents and carers join their children to read together in classes.

Inclusion is at the heart of our school which makes it a place where all pupils are encouraged to achieve their full potential and develop into intelligent, creative and ambitious young learners. Our rich curriculum, which is delivered by outstanding teachers in a positive and inclusive manner, ensures that all children are constantly challenged and have lots of fun whilst doing so. This outstanding learning behaviour enables all children to make accelerated and progress, which is something that was celebrated in September 2015 when we received an award from Southwark Council for Outstanding Pupil Progress.

We provide children with a stimulating and engaging learning environment which showcases the outstanding learning that takes place in the classrooms. The education that we offer our children is cutting edge and evokes critical learners and philosophical thinkers. We are very proud of the children who attend our school and in turn they are extremely proud to be members of Crawford Primary School.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
