I am delighted to welcome you to Paxton School, on behalf of the Children, Staff and Governors. I hope that you find the website helpful and you are able to find the information you are looking for.
Paxton School joined the Gipsy Hill Federation of Schools in 2009 and along with other schools in the Federation, benefits from and shares a rich range of expertise and skills. We are incredibly proud that Ofsted has judged our school as Outstanding in all areas (March 2013).
In September 2016 the children moved into a brand new, four storey school building. Our school roll will continue to grow incrementally each year to be two forms of entry in Nursery and three forms of entry from Reception to Year 6 and we will reach our full capacity in 2022.
We believe that every child can attain educational excellence. Our exceptionally skilled staff are dedicated to high standards and committed to enabling all children to reach their full potential, across our wonderfully broad, creative and stimulating curriculum. We provide a supportive and purposeful environment, in which children are eager to learn and excited about taking on new experiences and skills.
Our children develop self-esteem, self-worth and a sense of pride in themselves and their school. They respect and understand the needs of others, work well together and contribute fully to the vibrant life of the school, making it an amazingly enriched community. This fantastic start in their school life enables them to flourish and develop into unique and self-confident individuals, who can contribute fully to and thrive in the wider world.
"Staff are passionate about giving the pupils the best opportunities they can in order to make sure they are excellently well prepared for the next stage in their education." March 2013 Ofsted report
We value and welcome the involvement and commitment which our parents/carers show in the education of their children. We know that it is the good working relationship between children, staff, parents/carers and governors, which contributes so greatly to the overall effectiveness and success of this school.
We are keen to offer prospective parents tours at the beginning of each academic year, so please do contact us directly, if you would like a visit to learn more about the school.
