What the school says...

Fenstanton Primary School is a 3 form entry school based in Tulse Hill, South London. We joined Gipsy Hill Federation in 2012 and are rated as 'Good' by Ofsted.

We are a thriving three form entry school offering provision for pupils aged 3-11 from a richly diverse community. We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality provision in a safe and engaging learning environment. Our children are immensely proud of our school and their achievements.

We offer a stimulating creative curriculum, delivered by exceptional practitioners, to develop a genuine thirst for knowledge as well as securing those basic skills on which the pupils can continue to develop and apply in later life. We have also received the Basic Skills award recognising the wide range of provision across the school to embed basic skills in maths and literacy. We foster in our children a deep sense of purpose, constantly giving them the opportunities to explore how their learning will apply to their adult working lives. In turn, we raise pupils’ aspirations allowing them to see difficulties as challenges that they can overcome and offer opportunities for them to develop a love and appreciation of the arts in its various forms. We are a future thinking school recognising the need to develop enquiring minds and the influence that science will have on improving our local and global communities, as such, we have invested heavily to develop our science provision and as a result received the Gold Science Quality Mark.

"THE ATMOSPHERE IN SCHOOL IS HIGHLY POSITIVE. PUPILS WORK HARD ON THEIR OWN OR IN GROUPS AND IN PAIRS." MARCH 2013 OFSTED REPORT

Fenstanton Primary is a nurturing school and we are proactive in removing any barriers that have the potential to hinder our pupils’ progress as such our children make exceptional progress. We have a good home and school partnership, demonstrated by the positive feedback we receive and the progress of our children. Achieving the Inclusion Quality mark is testament to our unwavering commitment to ensuring all children receive the best education possible regardless of their abilities or starting points. We are committed to developing moral purpose and actively promote everything we do in the values of respect, honesty, integrity and responsibility in our pupils, in order to prepare them for life beyond our school gates.

Fenstanton Primary School has been on a journey of rapid improvement over the last 3 years moving from special measures to good within one year of joining the Gipsy Hill Federation leading school improvement. Although we have been graded as good by Ofsted, we are keen to be judged as outstanding. Our continued partnership with our parents and carers will secure this judgement.
