Welcome to our website, and welcome to Beddington Park Primary!
We are a thriving multi-cultural school situated in the London Borough of Sutton, near to Croydon. We have the greatest pride in our children and their achievements, and strive to achieve our very best in everything we do. Our school sees each pupil as unique and individual. We are both committed and successful in ensuring that each child is encouraged, nurtured and challenged to achieve their fullest academic, artistic, sporting and social potential!
Academically, we are very strong. Children in our school very often attain exceptionally well when compared to all national averages and expectations.
From varied ability on entry to our school, 97% of our children achieved at least the expected standard in Reception last year, with many more achieving the highest standard possible. This is a feat that has also been repeated by us many times over previous years.
We are regularly congratulated by the Department for Education in respect of the quality and performance of our phonics teaching and outcomes. Essentially, this means the way in which we ensure that our children are able to read confidently and fluently from a very early age. The government runs a national check on phonics performance and our school consistently ensures that almost every child confidently passes this test. This is another area in which the school confidently surpasses all national averages.
Achievement throughout the rest of the school is also very strong over time and we regularly ensure that on leaving us, nearly every child attains or surpasses the government criteria for ‘secondary ready’. This, again, is significantly in advance of published national expectation and averages.
Our children are rightly very proud of their performance here at Beddington Park Primary School. We achieve these successes via a real and genuine focus on your child as an individual. My job, and that of everyone here, is a privilege. Parents and carers of Beddington Park Primary children choose to send their sons and daughters to us and trust us to educate and keep them safe. We would never underestimate the importance or significance of this trust and our performance over time is testament to our commitment to ensuring nothing but the very best for our children.
The information below expands a little on how we achieve everything that we do:
Our ethos and approaches to teaching and learning:
Our significant academic success does not come about purely by chance. We are very proud of our children, and will always strive to ensure that they receive nothing but the very best of our efforts, dedication and professionalism. We have a very strong commitment to fostering and developing respectful, polite and well-mannered children, and so laying the foundations for our pupils to grow into kind, caring and positive members of the wider community. Our pupils set great store by our school code of ‘Politeness, Manners and Respect’. Consequently, behaviour, care and friendship amongst pupils and across our school are very good. Children are, in short, very proud of themselves, their school and also very proud of each other!
Children exemplify our central motto of ‘Learning, Sharing and Growing Together as Friends’ at all times and in all circumstances. Our environment is exceptionally vibrant and stimulating, helping to inspire the highest standards and aspirations in all. In short, we encourage and facilitate every child to reach their fullest potential and strive to fulfil all of their most dearly held dreams!
Our vibrant, topic based curriculum has been designed and developed by our own staff. Whilst adhering absolutely to the National Curriculum, it spans excellence in the sciences, arts and sport, and provides many varied and exciting learning opportunities which are unique and bespoke to our local area, community and children. This full and rich curriculum is well supported by many varied clubs, trips and outside opportunities.
All in all, we are a happy, well-mannered and vibrant learning community. Why not give the school a call and arrange a time to come and see us for yourself? We will find a time and date that suits you!
We look forward to meeting you soon!
