What the parents say...

There may be some whisperings about this school but you have to visit to make your own mind. I am so glad I did. I was really impressed with the light airy feel of the school and welcome that I got. The staff are there because they care about the children and love what they do. The learning is interesting and challenging. My child can't wait to tell me all about their learning from the day. Thank you East Peckham Primary school you are doing a marvellous job!

My children have been attending East Peckham Primary School since 2008. In my opinion this school has gone from strength to strength especially in the last few years. The staff are lovely! They are friendly, approachable and above all else committed to each and every child. If an issue should arise it is dealt with quickly and efficiently. They are always looking at ways to improve the school and actively seek parents input to assist with this. I believe that children who feel safe, secure and are happy at school learn better and faster. I also believe that East Peckham Primary School provides my children with that environment. My children are all happy to go to school, in fact they look forward to it.

Cannot fault this school at all, all 4 of my children have been there, 2 are still there and 2 are now at secondary. All 4 of my children have been extremely happy and settled. Staff are very friendly and approachable and if you have any issue them it is always resolved quickly. East peckham primary have got the right mix of making learning fun and enjoyable and making children want to come to school. They are also privileged to have their very own swimming pool so children swim once a week from the Easter term until the October which in my opinion is an extremely valuable life skill that they are learning. I will always recommend this lovely village primary school to anyone that is looking.

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.
