Headteacher's welcome

Gipsy Hill

Crawford Primary School is a 3 form entry school based in Camberwell, South London.  We joined Gipsy Hill Federation in 2011 and are rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.  Please explore our stories below and view our section links for more information about us.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Crawford Primary School website which will provide you with an understanding of our school’s vision, give you an insight into our school’s successes and inform you of the exciting opportunities that our pupils have throughout their time with us.

During our most recent Ofsted Inspection in March 2013, Crawford Primary School was 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 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.

  • Welcome to Galaxy Class - Crawford Primary

    Post WW2, Britain encouraged immigration from common wealth countries. To a large extent, this was to help rebuild the country.  Galaxy Class used 'Comic Life' to create persuasive posters to encourage the Caribbeans to board the HMS Windrush.  For Black History Month, we are focusing on Poetry. We decided to use figurative language to write effective poems regarding the journey on the HMS Windrush.
